Crowhill Valley Wood

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Crowhill Valley is an atmospheric and tranquil wood with its stunted, contorted trees and abundance of lichens and ground flora.

It is situated in a narrow, steep sided wooded valley near the upper part of the River Fal.

One of the most significant areas of Sump Alder woodland in the South West, Crowhill and the surrounding woodland and valley are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Crowhill Valley Wood is bounded by the River Fal on the eastern side and a mill race to the west. It is likely that in the past, tin streaming was carried on here, as indicated by the number of pools and ditches in the bottom of the valley. These pools and ditches stay wet throughout the year.

The dominant woodland species are grey willow and common alder in the wetter areas and sessile oak and birch in the drier part of the wood.

Marsh plants and lichens abound including a number of rare species. In the southern part of the wood there is an area of fen meadow with alder woodland and fen meadow species.

The wood can be only be accessed by a narrow earth and grass path, following the drier bank of the river.
The path can become eroded during flood tides and after heavy rainfall so take care.
