Tregoniggie Woodland

Tregoniggie Woodland is a popular woodland walk in Falmouth. Bickland Water stream runs through the woodland, flowing into the local nature reserve at Swanpool. It is a great place for exercising the dog, or going on family walks.

This woodland, also known locally as The Plantation or The Greenbelt, was formerly part of Tregoniggie Farm which has disappeared underneath the Tregoniggie Industrial Estate which adjoins the Woodland.

There are a variety of trees including Alder,Oak, Willow and Hazel some of which are quite ancient, with a very old Ash, known locally as the Tregoniggie Titan. Lots of wildlife have made their home here (look out for the grey squirrel and one of the many thrushes). 

In Spring there are drifts of daffodils, a mixture of wild and cultivated, as well as other native flowers, like the lesser Celandine and the beautiful snake's head Fritillary, which is rarely seen growing in the wild, but happily survives here. 

The Friends of Tregoniggie Woodland was formed in 2013 and volunteers have been working to improve the site by arranging a whole range of events to encourage community involvement.  Activites include tree planting days, path sweeping, litterpicking and cutting back of brambles. Regular working parties are held on the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 10am - 12 pm (weather permitting).  Meet at the Venton Road entrance at 'Two Bridges' over the stream. Get involved by joining in with our activities - contact Euan McPhee Tel: 01326 219008 or email clethrionomys@btinternet.com   

Everyone involved agrees that this woodland is a special place and should remain at the heart of their community.  Why not pay it a visit sometime, if not to join a working party, but just enjoy a stroll through this lovely woodland corridor and enjoy nature.
