Lowestoft Civic Society/Heritage Workshop Centre

Heritage Workshop Centre is based at 80a High Street, Wildes Score, Lowestoft NR32 1XN, where you can see the interactive model of our lost village for just £2.50 per person. We take school groups and private bookings tailored around your needs, just e-mail or call 01502 581601 to book. Opening times Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9am to 4pm.

The shop is now part of the Lowestoft Heritage Centre. The Lowestoft Heritage Centre is a self-funding charity with the shop helping to support it selling stock kindly donated by very helpful and generous people. We try to remain under the umbrella of ‘Heritage’, selling mainly secondhand books, pictures, knick-knacks, documentary videos etc., the most popular being Old Lowestoft and anything about the two World Wars.

On August 1st we are celebrating the official opening of Lowestoft Museum at Broad House by the Queen, 30 years ago. There will be activities for families, the Travels in Time ladies will be coming back again (they did two family days for us last summer) running activities for children; there will be opportunities within the museum to handle various bits and pieces,( there may be a Family Trail if it is ready in time so better not say anything about that.)


Major park plan is inspiring ideas!

The local community are bursting with ideas for turning the East of England Park into a contemporary and heritage inspired park.

The East of England Park, known locally as North Denes, is located between the Birds Eye Factory and North Denes Caravan Park and includes North Beach and Lowestoft Ness.

The area is a project within Waveney District Council’s Lake Lothing and Outer Harbour Area Action Plan, which aims to transform this currently underutilised area into an exciting new park and events space, celebrate Lowestoft Ness, improve the vitality of the area and give the community a new space to enjoy. All of which will ensure our important local heritage is preserved.
