Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve St Ives Cornwall
The Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve is a 40-acre public open space around Knill’s Monument, above St Ives. Visitors can explore the woods, stroll over heathland and discover areas planted with young trees. A variety of activities take place at the reserve, including volunteer work sessions, wildlife surveys, environmental research projects and community events.
There are remnants of local mining history. As the Rhododendron has been cleared, other evidence of the site’s past has been gradually revealed, including old stone walls, marker stones engraved with lettering or numbers and also granite blocks showing drill holes where they were split during the quarrying activity. There wonderful views of St Ives Bay from the reserve.
