|Teign Heritage Centre|
The Teign Heritage Centre, home to the Teignmouth and Shaldon Museum, opened its doors to the public on 28th May 2011. The Centre offers local residents and visitors the opportunity to explore the fascinating heritage of the area, as well as attend events, concerts and workshops.
The original Museum, housed in an 18th century building, was given a £1.1m transformation and annexe, thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the CABE/ Sea Change Initiative, the Foyle Foundation, Viridor, English Heritage and many other funders, supporters and individual donors.
