Together with a grant of £2000 from Turvey Parish Council, it will enable the society to develop a local history website and walking tour app, featuring village voices. The project will stimulate research into the rich history of Turvey, whilst also ensuring the future storage of any ‘history in the making’. The new site will feature a timeline, an interactive map, and the story of Turvey through its buildings, landscape and lives of its people. A particularly exciting part of the project is “Village Voices”, which includes new oral history recordings from residents, as well as newly digitised clips of voices which were recorded on audio tapes in the past. These will feature on both the website and the walking tour app. Turvey is a village rich in heritage dating back to the Beaker people, and there is great interest in its history. A community play (www. bellsofturvey.co.uk) using archival research into the village in the nineteenth century was enthusiastically received by sell-out audiences. However, historical material is widely dispersed and there is no single reliable information source. Some documentary evidence relating to the village’s past has sadly been lost, for lack of a place to save it. By involving the local people in researching and documenting their village’s past, Turvey History Society aims to give ownership of Turvey’s past to the community, and to enrich their understanding of where they live.
