The 17th-Century long house (cottage and barn) is an unusual example of  surviving 17th-Century village architecture. In the 20th Century, the  long house was converted into a cottage and two lock-up shops, No. 22,  24, 26 Main Street.

The Heritage Trust for the North West acquired the two lock-up shops in  1999, and converted them, with grant aid from many organisations and individuals, to form a small Heritage Centre for Heysham Village.

The Centre was opened in 2000, and has been visited by over 100,000 people, exceeding all initial expectations. It is run entirely by dedicated  volunteers from Heysham Heritage Association.

In 2005, the Heritage Trust for the North West obtained the adjoining cottage, and in 2010 work to restore the Cottage and to add a new floor to the Heritage Centre was started. The work was completed by May 2011 and the Centre reopened.
