Malpas is a riverside village in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is situated two miles (3 km) southeast of the city of Truro, on the banks of the Malpas Estuary of the Truro River and Tresillian River.1
The village is in the civil parish of St Clement and is a popular centre for boating with navigable waterways to Truro, Falmouth and the sea. Historically, Malpas is known for its ferry service to the Roseland peninsula and there is a myth that this crossing was used by Iseult. Ferries and boat trips still operate from Malpas.
