+ The foundation of the Diocese of Truro and the importance of the Cathedral for many who live in Cornwall today

The Cornish Diocese was only created relatively recently in 1876. When Truro Cathedral was built it was the first cathedral to be built on a new site since 1220. Today, the Cathedral is of significance to Christians and non-Christians alike. Key Stage Two pupils have the opportunity to explore this significance and consider why the Cathedral was built so much later than many other Cathedrals in the British Isles.
