Heritage Centre

The Messenger team are fervently keen to ensure that the history of Collyweston stone slate, and the methods of extraction and historic production are not lost to future generations. 


This facility will provide a permanent home for important archives, including written records, tools and photographs. 

Aside from this we have also had a virtual reality experience produced of the former slate mine which spreads under our site, as well as engaging a local author Joshua Parfitt to collate a fascinating support booklet, encompassing a collection of tales and facts about Collyweston stone slate and some of the characters from its past and present.
