Carrick Roads, Truro - Falmouth Area


The Truro - Falmouth area contains some of Cornwall's major waterways including the River Fal with its numerous creeks and tributaries and the magnificent Carrick Roads which meets the sea at Falmouth.

Many of the tiny villages and waterside features in this area played an important part in the preparations for the D-Day landings, with much of the training and embarkation for the beaches of Normandy taking place from locations along the River Fal including Turnaware Point.

Sailing and a variety of other watersports are very popular activities in this part of Cornwall and the waterside towns and villages such as Mylor, Flushing, Falmouth, Malpas, Truro, Penryn and St Mawes offer excellent facilities.

Truro, Cornwall's administrative centre and the cathedral city of Cornwall stands on three rivers, the Allen, Kenwyn and Truro River. It is believed that this is the derivation of its name which is thought to mean "three rivers".

Falmouth has a number of fine beaches as well as being the third largest natural harbour in the world. This stretch of Cornwall's south coast also offers a huge variety of interesting picturesque fishing villages, harbours and beaches including Portscatho, Gorran Haven, Mevagissey, Portloe and St Michael Caerhayes.

Lighthouse enthusiasts will enjoy St Anthony Head which also boasts an interesting history as a gun battery.
