Gribbin Head, familiarly known as the Gribbin, is an elegant headland lying to the west of Fowey. There are two small broadleaf woodlands on the headland. The seaward wood or east wood is a rare example of a coastal elm wood, ash and sycamore are now more prevalent in the woodland but some beautiful stunted elm trees run down to the rocky shore. Covered in lichen, sea and windblown they have grown into glorious shapes. The woods become a carpet of ramsons (wild garlic) and other wild flowers in the spring.
