Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Scirpus sylvaticus - Wood Club-rush

Wood Club-rush is now known only in north east Cornwall. It can be found growing by the Bude Canal (SS20C, 1998, M.Atkinson) and in wet, wooded areas by the River Tamar, as near Launceston by Higher New Bridge (SX38N, 1998, R.J.Murphy). Other locations include Marhamchurch (SS20G, 1997, M.Atkinson), Welcombe Mouth (SS21A, 1983, W.H.Tucker), Marsland (SS21I, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), Westcott Plantation (SX29X, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Tutwell (SX37Y, 1998, M.Atkinson) and Westcott Farm (SX39E, 1998, M.Atkinson).
