Tregony, also known as Tregoney is a pleasant village of approximately 1000 inhabitants.

It is situated in the middle of Cornwall, between the towns of Truro and St. Austell.Pendower beach
In mediaeval times Tregony was an important port and 'Town', Truro, meanwhile hardly existed. It is difficult to imagine this today when the only water in sight is the tiny river Fal at the bottom of Tregony Hill, in those days the river was much wider, but has since silted up, no doubt due to tin streaming further up river.
Tregony Borough was invested with the priviliges of a manor and court before 1066 and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Our local beach is Pendower Beach which is the west part of a huge sandy beach about 1 mile long in Gerrans Bay. There is a slipway down to the beach. Dogs allowed all year (on leads) at Pendower Beach

Places to visit/Things to do - This is just a small selection of the wonderful places to visit in the area:

Lost gardens of Heligan

The award winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, asleep for more than seventy years, are the scene of the largest garden restoration project in Europe. In the spring of 1991, the Gardens of Heligan lay under a blanket of bramble, ivy, rampant laurel and fallen timber. A year later, the restoration team opened the gardens to enable the public to share in the excitement of their discovery. In the northern gardens are two and a half miles of footpaths, an Elizabethan mount, rockeries, summer houses, a crystal grotto, an Italian garden, a fine set of bee-boles, a wishing well and a superb collection of walled gardens. Remarkably much of the original plant collection has survived, sometimes to record sizes  Website
