A Walk Around Truro

17 May

I grew up in and around Truro and thought I knew the city quite well. True, I knew all the lanes, alleys  and short cuts having spent hours roaming or cycling around as a child but today I saw and learned so much more!   We went on a guided tour, Truro Now and Then and discovered more than I can possibly tell you about.  I will give you a gallery with captions and wish I could remember all the fascinating stories we heard!  Next time you are in Truro, book a tour with Viv Robinson, Blue Badge guide and have the secrets unfurled as you walk around. Click on any photo for the detail and the caption.

    Under our shop false floor at Bridge Antiques they relaid the wooden block floor after some of it was removed from the cathedral

    Squeeze Guts Alley, I love it and how it got the name. I have yet to make it as far as Truro or any part of Cornwall. My time on the mainland was usually spent in the north east.

    Lovely to walk around Truro with you. I remember the Cathedral and Boscowan street. Nice to hear all the little stories and insides! Well I walked around as a tourist and it is lovely!

    This was kind of funny as I was first thinking Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada but then as I was looking at the pics… I thought… no way… Truro isn’t this nice and doesn’t look this quaint… this must be Europe.

      This is Europe! It is Truro in Cornwall, UK. We went to Truro on Cape Cod a couple of years ago, also very different from our little city. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment – much appreciated. 🙂
