South Downs Heritage Centre

We are a growing community of over 60 artists, makers, foodies, educators, gardening history enthusiasts and volunteers. We are passionate about what we do and we want to share this with you. We consider the Heritage Centre project a work in progress, constantly growing and evolving as we come up with new ideas for exciting events, exhibitions, talks, workshops and much more! There will always be something new to see each time you visit us and many things you can join in with, or become involved in.

Museum in the park, Stroud

The Museum in the Park is set in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Situated in a Grade II listed 17th Century wool merchant’s mansion house, our collection tells the fascinating story of the Stroud District’s rich and diverse history.

With over 4,000 objects on display, including dinosaur bones, historical paintings and even one of the world’s first lawnmowers, there is something to spark the interest of all of our visitors!
