The book is a history of Troston covering life in the village over a period of more than 3,500 years. The contents were originally researched and compiled into The Book by Janet Barnard, a retired history teacher, and completed in 1990. The original version was transcribed on to a BBC Microcomputer word processor by Vera Gaught.
The current version was compiled by Lynne Fugle and Sue Rankin, remaining a close facimile of the loose-leaf version produced by Janet in 1990. You can download a PDF copy of the book.
