Due to ongoing covid-related staffing issues, it may be necessary to close the Heritage Centre at short notice. If you are planning to visit our beautiful centre we would advise you to contact us in advance to confirm we are open - (015396) 25800/25239 or info@highlaning.com.

The Dent Village Heritage Centre

At the Dentdale Heritage Centre visitors will find a wealth of information on the working lives and social customs of the Dales folk who inhabited this beautiful area in times past.

The centre itself has been designed and built entirely by local labour, being beautifully converted and extended on the site of an existing structure which once served as the filling-station for Dent town.

Most of the exhibits are of genuine Dale’s provenance, a large number of them being taken from the collection of Jim and Margaret Taylor of High Laning Farm, the Centre’s founders, who have spent many years rescuing and refurbishing many of the traditional artefacts on display.
