Almost certainly originally a single farm with workers’ cottages, Treverva grew into a small village at a road junction. It was once a thriving village of mainly granite workers, a busy place with granite being hauled by horse from quarries to Freeman’s Wharf in Penryn. It which is now a much smaller settlement.

The valley between Treverva and Mabe was flooded to create Argal Reservoir, of which there are magnificent views from the road through the village.



We hope you will soon feel settled in, and list below some information about the area that you may find helpful.
