Falmouth Green Corridor

The Falmouth Green Corridor comprises the woodlands, habitats, ecosystem and green spaces which border the Bickland Stream as it flows from its source at Kergilliack to its outlet at Swanpool Beach.

Falmouth Green Corridor Forum
Falmouth Green Corridor Forum is a volunteer community group formed earlier this year to promote, conserve and enhance the Falmouth Green Corridor.

The Forum was established by three community conservation groups active along the green corridor, these being, Friends of Tregoniggie Woodland, Prislow Woods Community Project and Swanpool Forum. These groups felt that a parent or “overarching” group was necessary to help coordinate their activities and to address matters which require a “whole corridor” perspective, such as pollution monitoring, protection from inappropriate developments, education/awareness programmes, etc. Members of these groups have been joined in the Forum by representatives from Cornwall Council, Falmouth Town Council, Cormac, Environment Agency, South West Water, Falmouth Civic Society, Falmouth Allotments Association, Cornwall Wildlife Trust and individuals with interests and expertise in nature conservation.

Visiting Information

The Falmouth Green Corridor is an informal tract of land following the Bickland Stream and is freely accessible along most of its length. The majority of the individual sites along its route, such as Tregoniggie Woodland and the Swanvale/Swanpool nature reserves are owned by Cornwall Council. Smaller sections, owned by South West Water and private individuals, may not be wholly accessible.

How to get here

The corridor may be accessed at numerous points along its length, including Bickland Hill (by Falmouth Football Club) at the western end; at Swanvale (Boslowick Hill) in the centre of the corridor and Swanpool Beach car park at the southern extremity

The Maritime Line runs a twice hourly service between Truro and Falmouth. Falmouth Penmere station is a 5 min walk from the Swanvale entrance to the corridor.

Free on-road parking is available at a number of the various access points. A large, public, fee paying car park is situated at Swanpool Beach by the southern end of the corridor.
