If you’ve ever been lucky enough to go on a walk with archaeologist and historian, John Smith at Treffry Viaduct in the Luxulyan Valley, you’ll know just how knowledgeable he is about this historic monument and its beautiful surroundings.
If you haven’t had the chance to go on a walk with John then we think we’ve produced the next best thing – a 20-minute film, which sees him take viewers on a whistle-stop tour of the incredible history behind this 19th-century architectural wonder.
The film premiered last Thursday to a packed audience in Luxulyan Village Hall, and we’re so pleased to hear how much those who attended enjoyed it!
The film is part of a £10K community history project which has been funded by GWR. We would like to say a huge thank you to GWR for its generous support, which has enabled us to produce this film, as well as carry out volunteer conservation sessions, guided walks and screenings of the film for the local community.
We would like to thank Jonathan and Sarah Treffry for kindly inviting us into their home and allowing us to film at Place – footage which, we hope you agree, adds a great deal of context to the story of Joseph Treffry.
Our grateful thanks go to the Friends of Luxulyan Valley for allowing us to use their map of the valley and to Lightbox Studios for their hard work putting the film together.
Finally, we would like to extend a huge thank you to John for his time, patience and expertise.
We hope you enjoy the film!
