We are focussed on creating a heritage hub which will be accessible to everyone and contain the oral, written and visual history of the Valley.
A new vision for a new era
Tamar Valley Heritage to be hosted with Partners
We had hoped to create a bespoke online heritage hub for the scheme area, but because of the large costs involved and the need for an expert archivist, we have decided to instead work closely with existing online heritage/historic sites, including Devon & Cornwall HER, Kresen Kernow, The Box (Plymouth) and Historic England, to ensure that records relating to the scheme area are searchable on their systems. This is still a considerable undertaking, but the start-up costs will be mitigated and the expertise is already in place.
Seeking Miners, Growers and Forestry Workers!
To create an oral history of the Valley we are looking for anyone who remembers what life was like working in the mines, the market garden industry, forestry or ferries. The oral history will form part of the Heritage Hub, which will store a wealth of historical information about the valley in an online resource that schools, academics and researchers can use. So, if you have any information that can help, please get in touch with Gary Lewis, Tamara Senior Heritage Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org
