Falmouth Town Council to launch one of best pump tracks for cyclists in the South West

One of the best pump tracks for cyclists in the South West is to be officially opened in Falmouth’s Trescobeas Park by Councillor David Saunby at 11am on Saturday 18 June 2016.
A pump track is a looped trail of smooth dirt mounds for cycling around, at speed, without pedalling. The name comes from the pumping motion used by the cyclist’s upper and lower body when riding around the tracks, which are used for competitive time trials.

King Charles the Martyr Parish Church Graveyard

Behind Falmouth's parish church (in the centre of town) is a grassy open space climbing the hill to Wodehouse Terrace. The interesting history of this patch of ground is lost to many of Falmouth's residents, who often assume the site has always been used for dog-walking or view-taking. But a closer look reveals a scattering of gravestones, leant against walls or covered with ivy. These relics are a clue to the site's actual history; the entire hillside here is a disused graveyard, opened in 1664 and closed in the 1850s because the ground was literally overfilled with the dead.
