Lanhydrock Park contains a famous avenue of ancient beech and sycamore running down towards the River Fowey and a spectacular area of woodland dating back to 1634.

Its combination of ancient and established woodland makes it an ideal habitat for lichens. More than 100 species are to be found there, including a number of rarities.
