The Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre is situated within an extension and the ground floor of the 13th Century Church Tower. It is run by the Tourist Information Centre, and staffed by volunteers. Within the grounds of the Old Church (affectionately nicknamed the 'Pepperpot') is a bust of Admiral Sir William Tennant, who was Beachmaster at Dunkirk, and the Town's Old Market Cross War Memorial.

Refurbished and re-opened on 30th March 2010, the displays provide a history of Upton upon Severn. Display panels, a time-line and audio-visual displays, plus a desk for young children offer a bright and cheerful view of the town. Re-opening Ceremony

The Heritage Centre is open during the Spring and Summer from 10.30am to 4.30pm, dependent upon enough volunteers being available to man it.
