|Dursley News - January 2005|
Well, it took a while coming but at long last Dursley's new heritage centre is open for visitors. Situated in the restored Jacob's House in the centre of town, close to the Market House, the centre houses a number of displays that tell the story of Dursley's 1000 or so years of history.
Also on view are examples of some of Dursley's heritage - a Pedersen cycle, Bailey's early printing press, an ex-RAF Lister autotruck, a butter churn, an enamel sign from the Cotswold Cafe and an early turnpike toll board that used to stand at Draycott.
The Heritage Centre is very keen to hear from anyone who has anything
to do with Dursley's past that they could donate or loan for display.
