Kilkhampton Common

Kilkhampton common can be located by turning into West Street at Kilkhampton square. Follow the road all the way down the hill, there is limited parking at the gated entrance on the right-hand side.

Kilkhampton Common was a neglected stretch of countryside close to Kilkhampton village, but with a proven environmental value from an ecological assessment report carried out by Cornwall Environmental Consultants in July 2012.

Kilkhampton Common covers an area of approximately 20 acres. The Common is situated in a steep-sided, south-facing valley and comprises grassland, woodland and river habitats. The land is dedicated to nature conservation with sheep and horse grazing to manage pasture areas. Public access through the Common has been established using a combination of way-marked rights of way and permissive footpaths.

Westland Countryside Stewards now manage and maintain the common and they hope you will enjoy your visit.
