Local History website

There is a website, constructed by the St Petrock’s History Group with the invaluable assistance of Bill Hodgson, which aims to reflect the local history of Timberscombe through a wealth of photographic images and evidence supplied from numerous sources. This resource is openly accessible to all who are interested on https://stpetrockshistorygroup.omeka.net/ and each week a particular entry is highlighted through a Featured Item.

This week that Featured Item concerns local family the Copps which is newly written up by archivist Tom Sperling and well worth reading https://stpetrockshistorygroup.omeka.net/items/show/3491
