A rotten borough which sent two MP's to Westminster until 1832. On the River Fal, which used to be navigable up to Tregony, limestone and coal were imported and hides exported. Eventually the river silted up and the port declined. Of note in the village are a steep row of balconied almshouses built in 1696 and rebuilt in 1895.

 

TREGREHAN MILLS (St Austell)

A small rather forgotten village close to the boundaries of the Tregrehan Estate. Now bypassed by the main road it retains a small post office/ store, chapel and village playing field. Local bridle and footpaths can be reached easily and the Britannia Inn, good food and a golf links are within a few minutes drive together with a wider range of shops, garden centres and local markets. There are several beaches within a ten minute drive.

 

TREKNOW (Tintagel)

This small village is one of the seven Parishes of Tintagel. Its main attraction is that it is only a 15 - 30 minute walk across the fields to glorious Trebarwith Strand. The pleasant Mill House Inn is a short walk away as is a small general store. Tintagel is two miles away.

 

TRELIGGA (Delabole)

An unspoilt secluded hamlet within sight of the sea and surrounded by fields, reached by a winding narrow lane. About six miles by road from Port Isaac and about 15 minutes drive from Rock and Polzeath, it has two 'local' beaches. Trebarwith Strand, which can also be reached by footpath, about 1.5 miles away and the little known Tregardock about a mile away. The latter has sand and rocks but a rather difficult access for younger children.

 

TRENALE (Tintagel)

A pretty hamlet of cottages around a small green, which has a telephone box, about half a mile from Tintagel and 2.5 miles from the sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand. Bossiney, a steady 20 minute walk. It has a sandy beach at low tide and with the picturesque harbour village of Boscastle about 2.5 miles to the North East it provides a pleasant rural base from which to explore.

 

TRENARREN (St Austell)

A hamlet standing at the gateway to Black Head, which separates St Austell and Mevagissey Bays, and mid-way between Porthpean and Pentewan. It has remained rural and remarkably unchanged, and consists of half a dozen pretty cottages and gardens, a large house and a post box, all nestled in a coombe that slips down to a tiny cove between lovely cliff walks on the headland.

 

TRESILLIAN (Truro)

Once the lowest bridging point on the Truro River, and the highest navigable point from the sea. In 1646 the Royalist and parliamentarian forces signed a cease-fire. The Wheel Inn was the headquarters of the Parliamentary army - the inn has a spoked wheel of straw on its thatched roof. On the other bank is the Tregothan estate, home of Lord Falmouth (not open to the public).
