Research shows that there are close to 1361,Towns, villages and hamlets in Cornwall and just the one city which is of course Truro.

Trying to find the Cornish language equivalent is somewhat difficult and extremely time consuming but great fun. Places that in 50+ years, I never knew existed! Do they exist? If so, do you know the Cornish language equivalent?

198 Cornish Towns, villages and hamlets names translated into the Cornish Language. A-E

I don’t pretend to know much if any of the Cornish language but thought it might be fun to try and find as many Cornish language equivalents to each town, village and hamlet. I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me fill in the blanks.

Who would have known that Bude is otherwise known as Porthbud! Or Dobwalls being Fosow Dobb! Boscastle is Kastel Boterel! And wait for it Barcelona – Cornwall yep tis true – is otherwise know as Krowsfordh Trevelowen.

I stand to be corrected in any of these references and would appreciate any missing translations and or corrections to the following list.
