Preserving and Sharing Hayle's History

Welcome to the Hayle Heritage and Cultural Centre website where you will find information about our activities.


The Heritage Centre is run by Harvey’s Foundry Trust - a charity that has for over 20 years been working to protect and promote Hayle's rich heritage.

Our aim is to provide Hayle with a community focus, giving the Foundry site a cultural anchor that facilitates education and learning, increases tourism and provides our residents with a sense of their history.

From April 21 we are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 11am - 4pm.
