Truro is a city
and civil parish in Cornwall, United Kingdom. The city is the centre
for administration, leisure and retail in Cornwall, with a
population recorded in the 2001 census of 17,431. Truro urban
statistical area, which includes parts of surrounding parishes, has
a 2001 census population of 20,920. It is the only city in the
county, and the most southern city in Mainland Great Britain. People
from Truro are known as Truronians.
Truro initially grew as an important centre of trade from its port
and then as a stannary town for the mining industry. The city is
well known for its cathedral (completed in 1910), cobbled streets,
open spaces and Georgian architecture. Places of interest include
the Royal Cornwall Museum, the Hall for Cornwall, Cornwall's Courts
of Justice and Cornwall Council.
The origin of Truro's name is debated. It is said to be derived from
the Cornish tri-veru meaning "three rivers," but references such as
the Oxford Dictionary of English Place Names reject this theory. At
best, the "tru" part could mean "three," though this is doubtful. An
expert on Cornish place-names, Oliver Padel, in his book A Popular
Dictionary of Cornish Place-names wrote that the 'three rivers'
meaning is "possible."
