I had never heard of Truro before coming to Cornwall but apparently the cathedral there is the 'mother' cathedral for all Cornwall. Certainly it is a large cathedral. Mind you even the smallest village seems to have a sizable church.

Of interest was the fact that the Truro Cathedral was only about 100 years old and was, I was told, the first cathedral built in the UK since the Salisbury cathedral in 1258.

1258? It would have been over 500 years old when Jim Cook sailed off to his rendezvous with Terra australis.
