Truro Meeting –

Truro Meeting – 16th July

We had a fascinating talk by Jeremy Dodgson, a volunteer at Trerice Manor just outside Newquay. Jeremy’s love for the building and it’s history shone through and I’m sure encouraged everyone to pay a visit.
Once the Cornwall seat of the Arundell family, Trerice remains little changed since it was built in 1573 and is a grand Elizabethan House on a small scale. Jeremy is one of the volunteers that gives the introductory talks pointing out the beautiful architecture including the original magnificent hall window, and ornate gables.
In 1953 The Elton family took on the tenancy from the National Trust and at his own expense paid for the repair of the of the remaining parts of Trerice, even rebuilding the fallen north wing. Today the Manors rooms are a mixture of historical styles with some set up as Elizabethan rooms and some as they would have looked in John Elton tenure in the 1950’s.
Visitors can now play Tudor games outside such as Cornish Kayles a game similar to skittles, and have lunch or Cornish Cream teas in the beautiful old Barn.
