In the same year the population of the Camborne-Redruth urban area, which also includes Carn Brea, Illogan and several satellite villages, stood at 55,400 making it the largest conurbation in Cornwall. Redruth lies approximately at the junction of the A393 and A3047 roads, on the route of the old London to Land's End trunk road (now the A30), and is approximately 9mi west of Truro, 12mi east of St Ives, 18mi north east of Penzance and 11mi north west of Falmouth. Camborne and Redruth together form the largest urban area in Cornwall and before local government reorganisation were an urban district.ToponymyThe name Redruth derives from its older Cornish name, Rhyd-ruth. Rhyd is the older form of 'Res', which is a Cornish equivalent to a ford, a common Celtic word; Old Cornish rid; Welsh rhyd ; Old Breton rit or ret, Gaulish ritu-, all from Indo-European *prtus derived word in -tu from the root *per « to cross, to go through »; Proto-Germanic *furdúz ; Latin portus, all related to the Celtic word.
