Town History

Finds from the Neolithic period at sites like Tremough show that this area was always a sought after place to live with woods, rivers, arable and pasture land.

Enclosed settlement sites, including Round Ring in the field of Behelland, to the north-west of Penryn creek and Tremough date to the Iron-Age or Romano-British periods. They predate the town of Penryn by a thousand years or more.

Documentary records begin with the Domesday Book.
