Treyew football is quite basic and a fairly open one. Apart from some temporary seated stands that have been put up (I guess to comply with League rules about the minimum number of seats that a Club must have) then the ground looks as if it hasn’t had any major investment for years. This is partly down to the Club’s ambition to build and move to a new stadium, the plans of which have been a long time in the making, but do now seem to be coming to fruition (see below).

On one side of the ground is a small temporary prefabricated stand that sits astride the halfway line. It is covered and has four rows of seating, housing around two hundred fans. Although it doesn’t have any supporting pillars it does have the base of one floodlight pylon sitting in front of one part of it, which may obstruct your view. Next to it (towards the Clubhouse End) is a taller covered basic terrace, that has several supporting pillars running across its front. Both these stands are set well back from the pitchside and have flat standing areas to either side. Opposite are two separate blocks of open temporary seating that are ten rows in height, both having a capacity of 500 seats. They are separated by a disused area, in front of which, on either side of the halfway line are the team dugouts. At the Clubhouse End, there is a portion of the open terrace as well several white-coloured club buildings that include the Club Bar. At the opposite end, there is again a rather small temporary seated stand that sits directly behind the goal. Although covered, it does have several supporting pillars running across its front. The team dressing rooms are located at the Clubhouse End, meaning that the teams come onto the pitch from one corner. The ground has a set of six small floodlights, three of which run down each side of the ground.

Although Treyew Road has several temporary stands, it has a tidy and well-looked-after feel. Rarely if ever are fans segregated inside the ground, which is testimony to the normally warm welcome that awaits visiting supporters. As the ground is quite high up (giving from the club car park some great views over the city and its cathedral), it is quite exposed, so make sure you wrap up well in winter. Of course, being in Cornwall, you will find locally produced pasties for £3. As for most visiting teams this is the longest away trip of the season, so why not make a weekend of it?

Truro City will be playing in a brand-new 6,000 capacity stadium at Langarth Farm which is situated three miles to the west of Truro and Treyew Road, the site of their former home. With their stadium having already been sold and demolished, this left Truro with nowhere to play and after talks with Torquay United, it was decided that the club would play their which then went south very quickly. Truro had to then move two hours away to Taunton Town in Somerset, where, thanks to pitch issues at Taunton Town’s Wordsworth Drive, the Cornish side had to find yet another stadium to play at. Just under three and a half hours away is Gloucester City where Truro, at the time of writing, are currently seeing out their season. For those Truro fans who will be making the journey to Gloucester to watch their team play a ‘home’ match, then this journey will take around seven hours in total.

From the A38 going into Devon and Cornwall, take the A390 towards St Austell and then onto Truro. On entering Truro the road becomes the A39 for a while (towards Falmouth) and this road takes you around the outskirts of Truro. At the double mini-roundabout that is the junction between the A39/A390 go ‘straight-ahead’ onto the A390 in the direction of Redruth. The entrance to the ground is half a mile further along this road on the left.

There is a large car park at the ground which costs £1.

Truro Railway Station is located just over half a mile away from Treyew Road and is only a ten-minute walk. It is served by trains from London Paddington. As you come out of the main station entrance turn right and follow the road down to the roundabout, where there is a Sainsburys store on one side. Turn left at the roundabout onto Treyew Road. The entrance to the ground is further down on the right.
