Kenwyn (Cornish: Keynwynn) is a settlement and civil parish in Cornwall, England. The settlement is a suburb of the city of Truro and is situated half-a-mile (1 km) north of the city centre. It gives its name to one of three rivers that flow through the city.

Kenwyn Rural Civil Parish

The civil parish of Kenwyn Rural was created from part of Kenwyn Civil Parish in 1894 to serve the outer parts of the area. It was abolished in 1934 and the parish was divided into three parts: the largest reverting to Kenwyn Civil parish, another 1500 acres to Chacewater Civil Parish and a further 700 acres to Truro Civil Parish.
