Heanor, (in case you are just browsing and don’t actually know), is a market town in Derbyshire, England, very close to the border with Nottinghamshire. Not a major tourist area, but we are here to celebrate our history and heritage, which is as strong as anyone’s! We hope you find our site both interesting and informative. This site is under constant change - most pages stay the same, but almost every month there are new additions, and eventually some items will disappear. Please keep coming back to see what changes we have made. If you’ve not visited for a while, have a look at the What’s New page, where we keep a running log of changes made to the site.
Ripley and District Heritage Trust was founded in 1993 with the aim of collecting and conserving documents and artefacts relating to the history of Ripley and district.
The original committee collected thousands of items and displayed them in premises in the town centre. In 2003, the collection was put in storage. Now a new committee is beginning to catalogue the collection and hopes to arrange limited public access and to continue the work begun of protecting the town’s heritage.
