A view looking up the River Fal with the Tregony Bridge in the left middle ground. On the right is Tregony Hill leading up to the centre of the village. Tregony was once considered a town and in the 14th century it was surrounded by busy woollen mills producing a rough serge aptly named Tregony Cloth'. A long time before that, the Phoenicians and Roman traders sailed here to trade tin. The river was navigable all the way to Tregony bridge, some fifteen miles from the sea, long before the ports of Truro, Penryn and Falmouth grew in importance. These days the river is silted up in part the result of run off due to deforestation and agriculture and also due to tin streaming and china clay processing upstream. Photographer: Charles Woolf
