The Book of Deer Project Centre at Aden Country Park is now located within the Heritage Centre itself.  The display is on the first floor in the old School Room and is open at all times when the Heritage Museum is open.  There will usually be a volunteer on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between 1.30 and 4.00 p.m. to help with any queries.  Please come along and visit – we’d be delighted to see you.  Please note, however, that the Heritage Centre is closed during the winter months November to March.  Special visits can be arranged by contacting us at –
