The River Allen (Cornish: Dowr Alen, meaning shining river), or St Allen River, to the north of Truro is one of two watercourses in Cornwall which share this name.

The River Allen rises at Ventoneage (Cornish: Fentenyk, meaning little spring) north of St Allen[1] and flows southwards through the Idless Valley into Truro. Here it joins the River Kenwyn to form the Truro River.
