HERITAGE SILKSTONE

Heritage Silkstone is a new organisation, founded in 2010, which aims to preserve and further the understanding of the heritage of the Village of Silkstone.

We believe that there is need for retelling the story of the Village and Parish - interpreting the wealth of heritage which lies within its boundaries.

Many Visitors come only in search of information about the 1838 Husker Pit Disaster and the Waggonway unaware that Abigail Pilmey, Joseph Bramah, Gervais Cutler and Thomas Wentworth, Cavalier are also a fascinating part of Silkstone's story

We joined with the PCC of Silkstone All Saints Church to run the Project 'Silkstone Reflects on the Church Heritage'. This provided a Heritage Research Space in the form of  Bramah Gallery where we base our work.
