I lived in Truro on and off for 5 years and miss it every day. Beautiful place, some wicked people people and a very perculiar pace of life. Don't miss pasties though, ate too many. Ick.

Lucy from Tilbury

our daughter helen & boyfriend doug spent a year at truro uni & spoke so highly of the people they met & worked with, that an extended visit is a must when we come home for a break next summer 2006

Alex Hosking Queensland Australia
I was born in Truro (1937) lived in Mithian and went to school at St. Agnes. I left Cornwall in 1952 to join the RAF. Then in 1966 I migrated to Australian and have been here ever since. Do I miss Cornwall? Well, I never gave it much thought until I got a computer and started finding a number of Cornish web sites such as this one. Now the old nostalgia bit is starting to kick in and I am reliving a little of my youth when I look at the pictures. More so the pictures of Mithian & St Agnes on other web sites that I have found. (Please try Charles Winpenny's Cornwall Cam when you get a chance) I will be making a visit to Cornwall on Aug 1st and will make a point of calling in to the Miners Arms in Mithian where I used to live. I want to get aquainted with the ghost that the new landlady has said is causing some consternation amoung staff and patrons. I will want to know why he never bothered me when I was a young and impressionable lad. A bit of PR work if you ask me.

claire van leeuwen

Jo from Threemilestone

anthony lewis st Austell
Pictures of public transport would be good.

Jack Adamson Truro
ive lived in Truro all my life and yeah it is a great place but im sure that there are a lot of other people out there who would like to go to America,Spain and other places like that, its just because you are not there you really want to go, same with us kernow residents we'd like to go anywhere and it feels great, so anyone who hasn't come to Truro its a great place to be, ps we have got the best pastys in the world

dave truro
truro is the best place in the south west, maybe even the uk! you just dont know it yet! everything is fine here you dont need to leave, maybe only for a beach to dig a big hole in.....! why cant they clean up the damned river north of the park?

John Pett Finland
Lived in and around Truro 1976 to 1981, loved it. Friday nights at the William IV, long walks on the cliffs at St Anges. Ah summer 1976 conish beer and pasties.

Tracey, New Zealand
Have been away from Cornwall for nine years now and still miss it. Seeing all of these beautiful photos of Cornwall has made me feel very homesick all over again! It really is the most beautiful place.

Becci - Truro
I've spent most of my life in Truro and have worked in L2 Club and Bunters Bar for the last 2 years. Have spent the last 8 months in Australia and am loving it out here. But there's nowhere like home! Coming back at Easter and can't wait to have a huge night out at L2! Truro's the best!

Robin Playing Place

wahoo after searching for ages i finally found a pic of my house truro kicks ass with chocolate buttons and jelly personally i think having the piazza in lemon key is better than the carpark although i guess they could have made it better tis really just bricks and benches

jos mate tonia from porthtowan

James from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Born in Truro... only been back a few times though.. I just plain miss England. Our Calgary Flames (Hockey) are deep into the playoffs. Don't know if any of you watch much hockey, but we're doing well this year. All my family lives up in, or near, Warrington, like Ms. Griffiths.

Louise ex Truro Girl
Cornwall is the best place to grow up in, when you are there you may think other wise ut once you move away you'll be gutted. I miss Truro so much and all the great beaches and people. St. Agnes is such a kicking place to go in the summer. Any one thinking of going to Cornwall to visit i well advise it.looking at these pictures i realsie how much i love this place.

Rosy Smith from Falmouth

I used to live in truro and these ics make ya realise howgreat it is to live there. Me miss it loads!!!!!

I used to love just going up to Malpas and watching the day go past sitting at the edge of the river. I miss the place loads!

Geoffrey Hebdon, Cape Town
The tourists miss many of the really interesting places, such as a village where my wife and myself stayed, that has a collection of Cornish characters in a place called Bar Ripper, near Cambourne. We found ancient remains of early Christians in that area, not people, but structures. Its well worth the visit.

Christopher Eddy
It would have much nicer if they opened up the River as use to be, instead of building that what i call an eye soar,The Piazza on Lemon Quay

Chris Pentecost- Truro
Hi I'm travelling the world with my girlfriend. I'm in Sydney its the 22/12/2003 X-mas on the beach. Feeling a little home sick and wanted a reminder of home.

Ashley Brent from Brest, France
I spent the best years of my life in Newquay and around the Truro area, living in St Columb. Miss it terribly, the food (no pasties in France), the countryside, the life. Cant't wait to get back there and live the good life again - sea, air and rain!

Tonia from Accrington

Eclipse Man
Is the Eclipse not a gay bar sigh the memories

Nick, Truro
I grew up in Playing Place near Truro. I love it. Great site. Miss cornwall loads. Is that darned skate park still there?

Emma Lipman from Bahrain (Middle East)
WHERE ARE THE PHOTOS OF FALMOUTH?? My family live in Falmouth and (although i never thought it possible) i quite miss the area. The beaches and nice long walks...though i dont think i quite miss the rain and wind! I miss the sound the of the waves crashing down and the whole feeling of being by the sea. There is some lovely counrtyside- worth a visit! Truro had some interesting little corners to visit, the little coffee shops and pubs...*sigh* cant wait to go back for a holiday.

King Kernow
This hill brings back memories!! After L2 on a monday one night my friends and thought it was a good idea to ride a wheely bin down it, we made it just about!!!
