Home Our Area Fishermead


Fishermead is named after a field called Fishers Mead. The fishing theme is continued in the street naming. All of the streets are named after Cornish fishing terminology.

The original housing was grouped around squares. A particularly striking area is Kernow Crescent built in 1981 which encloses the local park. The area takes on the grid design like many others in the city, with a central boulevard with the services running off it.

The Coop in Fishermead, part of the area covered by Campbell Park Parish Council.
