Breney Common from Helman Tor

Breney Common is a nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest, noted for its biological characteristics, in mid Cornwall, England, UK.[1] It is located mainly in Lanlivery civil parish, with the Saints' Way footpath running through it.[2]

The common forms part of Breney Common and Goss and Tregoss Moors Special Area of Conservation.[3] The nature reserve is owned by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust/Cornwall Trust for Nature.[4]


This SSSI used to belong to the Red Moor–Breney Common SSSI, the two sites having split in the 1986 revision where both sites were expanded.[1] There are now three adjacent nature reserves Breney Common, Red Moor and Helman Tor.
