HistoryEdit

Treyew Road has been Truro City's home since the mid-1900s. A covered terrace was in place behind one of the goals until the mid-1970s when a road widening scheme resulted in it being removed. Only in recent years have they added to their old stand and erected two new stands on opposite sides of the ground lifting the capacity to approximately 3,000.

In 2014, Truro City sold the stadium. After being given four years to build a ground from the sale they failed and were told to leave by the company who owned it. They shared a stadium with Torquay United F.C for a while, before returning to Treyew Road in January 2019;[2] the club was bought by rugby union club Cornish Pirates in March 2019, and is set to ground-share at a purpose-built stadium, the Stadium for Cornwall (not yet commenced), at some future date.[3]

Cornwall County Council's New County Hall (Cornish: Lys Kernow) is also located on Treyew Road.
