Filling in Back Quay (1)

The River Kenwyn ran through both Back Quay and Lemon Quay in the centre of Truro until the 1920s. Running immediately behind City Hall, the river proved a useful vantage point for the recievership of goods that arrived and departed on the boats which docked at the quays during the 19th century. The river was eventually covered over in the 1920s as part of the process of ‘filling in’ Back Quay.
