Notable landmarks

Dating back over 400 years the Carne Arms is an old inn with open fires. Thought to have originally been part of the local Rectory its name is ancient and is derived from the Cornish "Carn" which means "rock". However, in this instance, the inn probably received its name in memory of a wealthy and influential local family rather than from the feature of the local landscape.

The wood was founded in the year 2000 and is kept by the Woodland Trust. The wood was planted by locals and is open Free 24 hours, 7 days a week. Worney Wood allows dogs. Worney wood hosts a range of trees and hedgerows. For more information visit the Woodland Trust page
