Visit to Brigg - to market etc. Found the Heritage Centre by accident and found it to be a very interesting place. Very helpful staff - pointing out things of interest & in particular the Medieval Raft that was in pride of place

The center was very good if only to see the raft. The remaining exhibition in my eyes was sparse . Just very run of the mill .

Planned a visit as camping nearby, very informative curator who took time to explain some of the exhibits and the temporary exhibition - which was really interesting (excerpts from registers about causes of death many years ago) the Brigg raft is spectacular.
