Truro is Cornwall’s only city and is the most southern city in Great Britain. The name Truro is believed to have come from Tri-veru, meaning three rivers – Kenwyn, the Tinney and Allen – which together combine to create the Truro River.
Today, Truro is still a bustling port and handles more goods than any other port in the country.
Richard de Luci, Chief Justice of England, granted land in Cornwall for his services to the court, built a castle in the 12th century. The town was established near to the castle and it was awarded borough status to enhance economic activity. Unfortunately, the castle is no longer in existence.
