Welcome to The Kegworth Heritage Centre!

The Kegworth Heritage Centre (formerly The Kegworth Museum) is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and we are unable to maintain a regular opening pattern (for the latest update and some photos, have a look on the News and Events page). Opening is limited to specific dates and times to coincide with other activities in Kegworth Village and neighbouring villages and districts. These are posted on on our Events page and on our Facebook page.

Thank you for your continued support!
