Living Memories

Our last section goes from World War II to the present day. It contains records, stories and the memories of some of our older residents.

In many ways this is the most important section of our history pages, and it will be the one that we update the most.

We have divided this section as follows:

WWII – how the war affected Treoes

Post War Period – food rationing and rural life

1950s – the development of industry and new housing

The Hunt – the annual event and how it was run

Saint Mary Hill’s Fair – horse trading and gypsies

Horses and Pigs – what life was like in Treoes

The Star Inn – including the day the thatched roof was ablaze

The Carnival – memories of what went on

Old and New Housing – as new houses are built the character of the village changes

Friends of Treoes – looking to the future
