Despite appearances Truro Cathedral is only just over 125 years old. Truro had its own bishop until the latter part of the 10th Century then the Cornish Diocese was held jointly with the Devon Diocese at Crediton and then in 1050 at Exeter. Over 800 years later in 1877, after 30 years of intense lobbying, the Cornish Diocese was re-established at Truro and covers the whole of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly plus two parishes in Devon. Once you've done the cultural bit, you can walk 50metres out of the main doors and try some retail therapy. The quickest way to Truro is the train (1 change at St Erth), it takes about 1 hour, then a 20 minute walk to the town centre.
