The Old Fire Station Project

The Heritage Society of Downham Market have adopted a new project which will see them regenerating the Old Fire Station on Priory Road, we hope that this beautiful heritage building will be restored to its former glory thanks to their hard work and dedication.

The project which has been titled ‘The Old Fire Station Heritage Centre Project’ and is now taking effect.

Meanwhile the Original Factory Shop in Bridge Road, Downham West, has adopted this project as their Charity of the Year in their company’s ‘Make A Difference’ campaign for 2012.

Ultimately the Heritage Society intends to move to the Old Fire Station building once the work is completed.

Anyone who is interested in local history and/or has a couple of hours to spare is welcome to join in on this work. If you would like to find our more information or get involved you can visit the Heritage Society’s website by clicking here
