Calstock Nurseries and Market Gardens, Cornwall


  • Located in Calstock, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • If you walk, for example, the high paths of Maddacleave Wood on a sunny day and look west across the River Tamar into Cornwall, you'll see light reflected from the market garden nurseries at Calstock. The nurseries that are marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer 108 'Lower Tamar Valley & Plymouth' map are what is left of a once large and important local market gardening industry
  • 'Market gardens once lined the warm south facing slopes of the valley producing early flowers and plants, which were taken to Plymouth on the 'market boat'. Cherries, apples and strawberries were grown in such abundance that visitors in the late 18th Century wrote of the valley as a vast fruit garden.' (Source: local information board)
  • If this is of interest, read about the old flower fields, or 'quillets', on the cliffs of The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula)
  • By James Penman
