Boscawen Park, Truro

#6 of 15 in Parks in Truro District
Boscawen Park is a cricket ground located in recreation grounds along Malpas Road in Truro, Cornwall. The ground is situated directly next to the River Truro, which runs alongside its western side. The end names are the City End to the north and the Malpas End to the south. Alternatively, these ends are also known as the Cathedral End and River End.HistoryEstablished by 1858, a team representative of Cornwall first played there against an All England Eleven in that same year. Cornwall County Cricket Club first used the ground in July 1895, eight months after the clubs founding, when it played a friendly against Devon. Cornwall first played minor counties cricket there over seventy years later, with Devon the visitors in the 1968 Minor Counties Championship. Two years later, the first List A match to be played there came in the 1970 Gillette Cup between Cornwall and Glamorgan, with Glamorgan winning by 72 runs thanks largely to Peter Walker's 51 runs with the bat and 5/21 with the ball. Cornwall played one Minor Counties Championship match per season at the ground during the 1970s, with the ground also hosting its second List A match in the 1977 Gillette Cup with Lancashire at the visitors. Cornwall continued to play one Minor Counties Championship match there per season throughout the 1980s, a pattern which continued into the 1990s.
