  • Those living further afield are welcome to travel to either Truro or St. Agnes and we can arrange to pick you up from Truro train station (TR1 3HH), Truro Bus Station (TR1 2LH) or from St. Agnes Church bus stop (TR5 0QP) before continuing to site (we will return you back to Truro by 17:30). Please select the ticket type with transport below and email us to arrange a seat on our transport: cocoast@mba.ac.uk.
