The shop, 71 High Street Lowestoft was opened at the end of October 2008 and has proved to be very popular. 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.
The shop is open four days a week and manned by Lesley Bunn, who has been involved with the Lowestoft Heritage Centre for some years producing some local books of her own which are available in the shop & from our online store. Between customers her time is spent making book marks, fridge magnets and keyrings with local pictures and also restoring photographs.
The shop is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 4pm.

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.
