We visited the Heritage Centre whilst visiting friends in Whimple. It gives a nice history of the village and the Whiteway's Cider factory. It's conveniently placed in the pub car park which is in the centre of the village. Worth a visit if you're in whimple.

We popped into the heritage centre as we had been told it was worth a visit by our host. We were not disappointed. A small old refurbished building in the car park of alone of the village pub was like a tardis! Full of artefacts, it was a very interesting museum with a friendly helpful guide when we wanted more info. The history of the famous white ways cider factory was very interesting, local crafts for sale, old and new school photos. So much info about the village presented in a very professional way. All compiled and maintained by the villagers. No entrance fee just donations. It was sweet and a surprising find.

I have now visited twice, the opening times are seasonal and limited, (Wednesday and Saturdays) so best to check, but worth a visit if you are in the area. It is conveniently located behind the car park of the New Fountain Inn, which was busy serving lunchtime food both times I was there.The volunteers I have met have all been enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area and its history. There are two rooms here, the first holds information on village history, including the railway which I was interested in. The second room contains much information and artifacts from Whiteways Cider who were formerly located in the village.
