I have visited the centre many times over the years but since it has been taken over by Clyne Heritage Society the experience has been so much better. Friendly, knowledgeable volunteers and interesting exhibits. A must-visit on your trip to the local area.

Good place to visit. Has some very interesting stories to read especially about the ice cream making family the Capaldis. Lots to look at. The person in charge the day we were there was very helpful. Take a look.

If you have a spare half hour or so it is worth popping in to the heritage centre. Friendly lady in attendance . Coal mining and brick making was the principle industry with some disasterouse consequences

We stopped here and were really pleasantly surprised by the Heritage Centre. It is packed full of fascinating historical artefacts. The local aspect made it so interesting. The gentleman in the centre was so helpful. We stayed a lot longer than we intended.
