Three Hours in Truro


I spent most of yesterday travelling to Falmouth, to attend the board meeting for Falmouth University's games degrees.

Hmm. It turns out that my ticket is an advance one tht only works on the exact trains it specifies. I have to catch the 3:30 train anyway. This left me with three hours to kill in Truro.
