The Clogher Heritage Complex includes the Heritage Cottage and Staunton’s Forge. In the Cottage Garden there is a display of vintage farm machinery, a and a picnic area with a water feature.
The land on which the cottage and garden stands was donated by Mrs. B. Cosgrave and family of Newtown, Clogher.
The Heritage Cottage is newly constructed, built in 2003, the labour and expertise supplied by our local FÁS CE Scheme.

The restored working forge is open to visitors - Stauntons Forge, Newtown was authentically rebuilt in its former form in 1999,and it reopened in 2001.
Every effort has been made to reproduce a typical one bedroomed labourers’ cottage, it includes a cailleach (a bed in an alcove) and a loft. The loft would have been used as extra bed space but currently contains an excellent display of churns and other artifacts. Local residents have donated many of the items on display
