The Book of Truro (pdf e-book)
The Book of Truro (pdf e-book)
  • Description

Cornwall's only city, Truro has the air of a country market town - which is just what it was before Queen Victoria granted it city status in 1877.

Once dominated by its ancient castle, Truro grew from a hamlet on the river and on the trading route from the north coast to the south. With every road leading out of town being a hill except the road to Malpas, it is understandable that waterways played a large part in the local economy.

Today Truro is a graceful cathedral city with some beautiful buildings, as well as the lovely Georgian architecture. The history of both the City and its people are illustrated here throgh hundreds of photographs, many not previously published.

This is another book in the Halsgrove Parish History series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future.
