Saltash Heritage was formed in 1986 by the late Cornelius 'Corny' Hearl and a group of like minded local people who wanted to see the formation of a permanent museum for Saltash. It finally achieved one of its original aims, when, in 2000, it opened the Saltash Museum and Local History Centre at 17 Lower Fore Street, Saltash. There is a small permanent display about the history and well-known 'characters' of Saltash, and a temporary, themed, display is mounted during the summer months (April to November).
The Tamarside Archaeological Survey is part of Saltash Heritage, and carries out geophysical surveys in the area using 'Time Team' type electronic equipment.

It will be over by Christmas

  • 5 April — 29 November 2014 *on now

Saltash Heritage's 2014 exhibition 'It will be over by Christmas' - Saltash goes to war will concentrate on how the First World War affected the people of the area, both at home and on the battlefield. What was happening to the women and children left at home? What did a bunker really look like? How did horses and pigeons help with the war effort? What relics and memories have been left behind, 100 years later? The exhibition will be opened by our Member of Parliament Mrs Sheryll Murray at 10.30am, For full opening times, please check our web site and click on the 'Museum' link.
