Truro South Cornwall
Cornwall's only city, rising from the wealth created in the tin mines. Truro is a most pleasant county town by any standards at the tidal reach of the lovely Truro River. The name Truro is believed to have come from Tri-veru, meaning three rivers, after the Kenwyn, the Allen and the Tinney. Together these form the Truro River which flows into the Carrick Roads and the River Fal. A few small coastal and river boats still use the old quays and some offer splendid excursion trips down the river to the Carrick Roads, Falmouth and St Mawes. This is a Cathedral City with some lovely buildings and a deal of charm.
