A 'raft' of adventure...



Brigg Heritage Centre is situated in the heart of Brigg, within the beautiful, iconic and historic Angel building (1st floor).

Our star exhibit, the Bronze Age Raft (known as the 'Brigg Raft' - which dates back to 800BC), was excavated from the River Ancholme, and sets the scene for a fascinating journey, charting the rise of Brigg as an important and influential market place, through to the picturesque town we know today.


At the heart of all we do is education, with children crafts, POP-UP exhibitions, talks and events... there is always something new!

Many visitors have already experienced our inspiring displays!
