Truro is the County Town of Cornwall and Truro derives its name from the Cornish Tri-veru, meaning three rivers, and developed as a tin port between the Truro River and the rivers Kenwyn and Allen. Its cobbled streets and tiny alleyways, known as "opes" lead to the magnificent Victorian Cathedral that dominates the city. Truro is an historic Market Town and is also a centre for the farming community.
