There has been a parish church of St Mary located on the site of Truro Cathedral since 1259, or even earlier. When Truro was chosen to house the Cathedral it was assumed that the existing church would be demolished. However, the architect, John Loughborough Pearson wanted the present church to be kept and after much persuading he cleverly incorporated the South Aisle of the old Parish Church into the new Cathedral.

The Cathedral was the first one to be built on a new site since Salisbury Cathedral was started in 1220. The Victorians decided to build this immense building and copy the medieval builders and architects. They adapted the classic pointed arches of the gothic style and used modern building techniques to create the wonderful building that stands today.

The Cornish Diocese of Truro was formed in 1876 and the Foundation Stones were laid on 20th May 1880, by the Duke of Cornwall (later Edward VII). Edward White Benson was the first Bishop of Truro (1877-1883) and it was his imagination and drive that established the new Diocese of Truro. In 1880 he created the ‘Service of Nine Lessons and Carols’ which for over 120 years has formed part of the traditional service on Christmas Eve.

Bishop Tim is the current Bishop of Truro and the 15th Bishop to hold the post.
