History of a town

Saltash Heritage finally achieved one of its original aims, when, in 2000, it opened the Saltash Museum and Local History Centre. There is a small permanent display about the history and well-known 'characters' of Saltash, and a temporary display is mounted during the summer months. The 2001 exhibition was 'World War II - The Home Front' (with over 2000 people visiting in the eight month period it was open), and the 2002 exhibition was about 'Our Rural Past'. In 2003 the exhibition was 'The Festive Fifties & A Century Of Royal Events'. The 2004 exhibition covered 'Times And Tide-Lines' - Employment, recreation, training ships & wildlife on our estuaries. The 2005 Exhibition - 'Are You Being Served?' - focused on shops and businesses in the Saltash area. The 2006 exhibition, "On The Right Track", was a celebration of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's achievements in South East Cornwall, timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of his birth in 1806.
