On with our tour of Truro and to meet some Truronians as the people from this city in Cornwall are known!  We've travelled 27 miles from our last stop Penzance but find ourselves closer to previous stops Falmouth (10 miles away) and St Austell (14.5 miles away).

Truro is a typically pretty Cornish town with cobbled streets and some Georgian architecture.  It is also a port once important in the fishing industry back in the 14th century, secure in its almost inland location, some 9 miles from the coast.  It is up a creek where the Rivers Kenwyn and Allen converge to form the River Truro later joining the River Fal and on into the large natural harbour of Carrick Roads mentioned in our tour of Falmouth.

The town later became important in the local tin mining industry as an official assaying and stamping of locally mined tin and copper.

Truro is now the retail centre for Cornwall with a wide variety of national chain stores, independent shops and markets.  It is also quite a cultural centre with many community events occurring throughout the year such as a half marathon, a city carnival which includes a parade of course, a circus, music and other performances, fireworks and food and drink fairs.  Christmas time sees a Winter Festival which includes a parade of Paper Lanterns which many of the community have made. 

Notable Truro residents
Truro seems to have 'given birth to' many people who have made it into the realms of the well-known from missionaries, composers, musicians and a physician from earlier times to a host of cricketers and other sports persons now.  Here are just some of its famous sons and a couple of daughters:

Grandmaster chess player Michael Adams was born in Truro

Also footballers Craig Alcock who plays for Peterborough United

and Matthew Etherington who now plays for Stoke City – HQ of Castle Comfort Stair Lifts, national agent for all stairlift manuacturers is also from the town.
Truro seems to have bred a whole team of cricketers including Paul Berryman, Nicholas Carter, Neil Curnow, Ryan Driver, Ben Frazer, Matthew Gitsham and Robert Brooks; astronomer Edwin Dunkin was also from Truro; our first woman, Helen Glover a silver medal rower was also born in Truro as was another rower Annabel Vernon.
