Newquay is a town inside the south west of England, in the United Kingdom. It is a civil parish, seaside inn, local centre for aerospace industries, future spaceport and a fishing port on the North Atlantic coast of Cornwall, approximately 12 miles north of Truro and 20 miles km west of Bodmin. The metropolis is bounded to the south by using the River Gannel and its associated salt marsh, and to the north-east via the Porth Valley. The western fringe of the metropolis meets the Atlantic at Fistral Bay.
The city has been expanding inland since the former fishing village of New Quay began to grow within the second half of the 19th century. There are a few pre-ancient burial mounds and an embankment at the place now referred to as The Barrowfields, four hundred m from Trevelgue. There were once up to fifteen barrows, but now only a few stay. Excavations right here have revealed charred cooking pots and a coarse pottery burial urn containing stays of a Bronze Age chieftain, who became buried here up to 3,500 years in the past.
