Treneglos, Cornwall

Treneglos is a hamlet and a civil parish in north-east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is in the Registration District of Launceston. Treneglos is described as a hamlet "where the old Cornish "trev" [settlement settlement] is no more than a triangular green beside a church and two or three houses".
