Map & Local Area

The village of Tregony is known as the 'gateway to the Roseland'. The exceptionally wide Fore Street is a relic from the days when this was a busy port with traffic to match. Tregony was once considered a town and in the 14th Century it was surrounded by busy woollen mills producing a rough serge aptly named ‘Tregony cloth’. A long time before that, it is thought that the Phoenician and Roman traders sailed here to trade tin. The river was navigable all the way to Tregony bridge, some fifteen miles from the sea, long before the ports of Truro, ...
