Threemilestone Green

Threemilestone is a small village in the civil parish of Kenwyn, located precisely three miles west of Truro, the only city in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Threemilestone has grown in recent years, as housing estates to the west have been developed. Between Truro and Threemilestone there is a continuous line of schools, colleges and industrial estates, including Truro College and Richard Lander School, a mere two-minute walk from the centre of Threemilestone. The village also has its own primary school which has 387 pupils.[1] (4-11 years old)

Amenities[edit]

In Threemilestone itself there is a central area of shops and facilities which include a Spar shop, baker, fish & chip shop, chemist, doctor's surgery, launderette, hair salon, Post Office, community centre, public house and social club, Methodist church, Vauxhall garage, dentist and coffee shop.

Threemilestone is also the location for a park-and-ride scheme that serves the A390. The park-and-ride resulted in an estimated removal of 118,000 cars from the road during its first 9 months of operation.[2] The park and ride is therefore an important piece of infrastructure, for the residents of Threemilestone and people travelling into Truro.

Leisure[edit]

The village also has a successful football club called Threemilestone A.F.C. which currently runs three sides, a first team, reserve team and a Sunday league side. The club plays their home games at Polstain Road, in the main parish council owned playing field, situated next to the primary school.[3] This park includes a Skate Park as well as a football pitch. There are a few parks in the area including leap park and swing park in the west side of Threemilestone. There is a historic patch of grass known to many as "The Green", this lies at the end of the roads Glyn Way, Pendeen Close and Berveth Close.
