Looe Heritage Afternoon

Our ‘Silver Sunday Heritage Afternoon’ will involve a free and fun interactive 45 minute talk from experienced guide Victoria Baldwin, plus look around the exhibits at the Looe Harbour Heritage Centre in The Old Sardine Factory, on the waterside in West Looe.

You will discover all about when the building actually was a Sardine Factory and about Joseph Thomas, who was Looe’s answer to Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Thomas designed both the famous Banjo Pier and the road to Hannafore.

Vicki has an extensive and ever-growing knowledge of Looe’s anecdotes and heritage, and is building a collection of archive postcards which she will be sharing with visitors at the talk. She says: “The history of Looe is close to my heart and I’m keen to share it on Silver Sunday as our contribution to this national day for older people”.

You can book your place by emailing info@oldsardinefactory.com or just come along on the day. You are free to choose if you’d like to order a tea or coffee to enjoy during the talk, which we will serve you from our Heritage Centre Coffee Shop.
