Welcome to our library.

Over the years we have collected a number of historical documents relating to Troserch Woods. We have scanned a lot of these and are they are available below for people to download. In 2007, with the help of The National Grid Natural Gas Pipeline Company, we also published a booklet entitled A stroll through The History of Troserch Wood, described as a walk through Troserch Woods giving a brief account of ruins, reminiscences and other aspects of historical interest. This again is available to download below.

If you know of anything that may be of interest please get in touch.

 

Originally a printed booklet of 35 pages this short account of our history is now available as a free download.  Click on the link below:
