Chyan Community Field, Halvasso, Penryn, TR10 9BT.
Grid ref: SW 744 316
Chyan is only 4 or so miles from both Penryn and Falmouth; but it’s not on a major road or bus route – its relative remoteness is what makes it so special – so getting there can be a little challenging.
Chyan takes its responsibilities to restraining climate change seriously and we want to do all we can to reduce car use to the site (for instance running events when public transport IS possible), so if at all possible – walk, cycle or use the admittedly restricted bus options or contact us to try and arrange a car share.
From Penryn, if you have the time, its possible to avoid roads for much of a walk via College & Argal reservoirs.
From Falmouth roundabout on A39 take A394 towards Helston. Travel through Longdowns until left hand turn to Herniss. Follow this small road for about 2 miles; you’ll got through the hamlet of Halvasso, and then BF Adventure centre on your left. Another 1/4 mile on, you’ll see a turning on your right to a variety of house names – Jobs Water, Maen Rock, Treworvack etc; do not go down there, instead continue for 50m more to enter Chyan car-park on your right.
OR via Hillhead Road (Penryn) towards Lamanva / Constantine. After Menallack Cheese Farm on your left, take the next right turn and car park is a few yards along on the left.
A 40 min ride from Falmouth. Please get in touch with us or other volunteers to arrange group cycles.
