The Oral History aspect of the website will continue to develop, with many more first-hand recorded examples from this wonderful collection of real memories, in the words of the people who bring our history alive.
Truro Uncovered has been created with the help of lots of people, and will continue to develop. We want to provide resources to make Truro's history interesting, accessible and enjoyable for everyone - please re-visit the site soon to see how we have progressed.
