Sharing Our Heritage

The Halstead Heritage Museum contains a number of displays including transport through the ages, the history of Courtaulds, a look at the famous Victorian stove manufacturers Portway and various artefacts from Halstead and surrounding villages.

In addition to the various displays we will also be selling a selection of local History related books (you can also see these in the publications page of this website).  

Due to the size of the Museum we can only exhibit a small number of the many thousand that we have amassed over the years. We try to update what we have on show as often as we can, and hold exhibitions focusing on a specific subject from time to time.
