The heritage centre will educate and entertain the visitor beyond expectation. It will utilise varied outputs to tell the fascinating, intriguing and varied story of the village and its former industrialisation. Lead mining, quarrying and bootmaking were the very embodiment of the village. A hard life backdrop to the famous stories of survival, mystery and murder which entwine themselves within the village’s intriguing past.
The Cupola kitchen café will provide an equally unique experience, with an imaginative collection of items from the Bakehouse. Menus will have an imaginative uplift on homely classics, made from the products of local artisan producers.
The Bakehouse will provide speciality breads, cakes and pastries. These will be incorporated into the café menus and available to purchase from the bakehouse and craft shop.
The Cupola Craft Shop will tell the story behind the varied items it will sell, with an overarching theme of tradition, originality and quality, made lovingly and locally, generating purchases of indulgence - ‘a step back in time, in every sense’.
