‪Visited last month on the trail of my family history. My dad’s family all came from the lovely town of Brigg.
We received a very friendly welcome from Chris and her 2 male colleagues, who could not have been more helpful.
They found a number of documents about my family from the local paper archives. The name of everyone who is mentioned in the newspaper is indexed, and it didn’t take long before 3 or 4 articles appeared about my ancestors., including a photo of my father playing cricket in the street age 9 in knee length shorts. I was thrilled as I had never seen it before.
The Brigg Bronze Age raft was interesting to hear about too.

There is a lovely cafe in the courtyard downstairs for lunch.

I really recommend the Heritage Centre if you would like to find out anything about the history of Brigg, or if you are tracing your own family history. There is a handy car park very close by too.‬

‪This is a hidden gem tucked away and on the first floor above the library. It is a shame it is not more prominent on the main square as it houses a fascinating collection of things including the remains of a Bronze age boat. The video about how it was found and excavated is worth watching. The volunteers are delightful and eager to welcome visitors.‬

‪Popped here on an off chance and loved the local museum. There is an exceptional artifact there (go see for yourself) which really demonstrates the local history and ongoing settlement of the area. ‬

‪Have meant to visit this place for ages.Today managed it and it was a really good experience. There was so much to see and the kind man in charge was so helpful. The big thing is the bronze age boat. There is a exellent war gallery. Lots of dressing up clothes for kids. Also a informative film with seats for when you flag.‬

‪Not the first time of visiting and won't be the last. Good lunch menu with lots of choice, even for a hungry cyclist. Very attractive venue in covered courtyard, very efficient and friendly staff. Only drawback on this occasion was the lack of nearby cycle parking - I had to use one of their drainpipes which I would prefer not to do.‬

‪I live locally and have intended to visit for a long time, today I took the opportunity to pop in with my grandma. We were immediately welcomed by the lovely staff members who were very pleased informative. Enjoyed a look around and was lovely to see what artefacts have been found in the local area. I will visit again and spend more time reading the information boards and looking at the pictures.‬

‪The history of the Brigg area goes back over several thousand years when early stone age man settled here. This small exhibition in the Angel Hotel gives an insight into the history of the area. There are display boards with a certain amount of information and display cases of some of the local finds. This complements the display in the North Lincolnshire Museum in Scunthorpe, and I would say has the edge.

Pride of place goes to the Brigg Raft, from the late Bronze age, about 800BC and originally discovered in 1888 by workmen digging for clay. The remains were fragile and susceptible to drying out so it was covered over to preserve it. It was eventually lifted in 1974 and kept in storage at the National Maritime Museum in London before returning to Brigg. Measuring up to 40ft long it is made up of five separate strakes (planks) nearly 9ft wide. It is the longest prehistoric boat to be found in Britain. Each of the strakes has a series of cleats carved at intervals along the length. These had holes in them for cross timbers which helped keep the strakes together. Joints were caulked with moss and covered with wooden battens. Stripped willow was used to ‘sew’ the structure together.

There is a short video and a small display cabinet shows the stages in construction as well as a model of what the boat may have looked like. There are two theories as to its use. The first is that it was a flat bottomed boat used on the Ancholme as a ferry. If so, it is estimated that it would have been able to carry either 40 sheep with 10 men, or 30 cows with 20 men. The other suggestion is that it had a rounded hull which was capable of sailing round the coast.

There is a small display of stone and flint tools from sites found around the area. The iron age finds include pottery and pins used to hold clothing together. Roman finds include more pottery, coins, broaches and pins.

Saxon finds include cremation urns, and a lot of jewellery including a comb and a glass bead necklace. Moving on the the Middle Ages, there is pottery, spindle whorls, coins, broaches, buckle and belt plates as well as a small model of Gainsthorpe Deserted Village.

There is also information about the Saxon churches , and medieval monasteries around Brigg as many of the parishes had small monastic houses attached to them.

Children aren’t forgotten either and there are clothes for them to dress up in, discovery pack to explore the centre colouring activities and a small tent to play in. On the fourth Saturday of the month there are also craft activities for them.

On the first floor in the Angel above the library, there is full disabled access. Entry is free. Opening hours are limited and vary during the year, so check the website before visiting. Staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, so do make time to talk to them.

This really is the hidden gem in Brigg and well worth visiting.‬
