Message From our Chairman:-
The Heritage Trust was formed in 2000 at a public meeting held at the historic Moat House. Members of The Peel Society, The Friends of Tamworth Castle and Museum and The Tamworth Civic Society formed the backbone of this group. The Trust became the umbrella group Aethelflaed was adopted as its logo using a picture of the statue found in the castle grounds. The Trust’s aims were to safeguard, protect and promote the history of Tamworth with the ultimate goal of creating a Tamworth Museum, but the Borough Council proved less than helpful. Unfortunately, a couple of years later the Civic Society folded, later still The Peel Society were able to create a very successful Peel & Police Museum at Middleton Hall.
Today the trust is active in many areas regarding the preservation and promotion of the rich heritage Tamworth has to offer. As well are providing residents with opportunity to increase their understanding of the importance of Tamworth and its significance in English history the trust champions people and buildings of local and national importance.
