Walk & Talk groups

Calstock W+T 2 20Aug14A great way to meet new people, explore your area, improve health, and it’s free!

There are two Walk and Talk Groups in the AONB: one meets every Monday in and around Saltash, and the other is every Wednesday around the rest of the Tamar Valley (and beyond!)

These groups are of a ‘medium ability’ level, many walks being quite energetic and lasting over 1.5 hours over varying terrain. The group is a social walking group, with health and wellbeing in mind. The current programmes for both groups are available to download below:


Saltash Walk & Talk Programme, January – March 2018

Tamar Valley Walk & Talk Programme, January – March 2018


If you need a little encouragement to join our friendly, free, weekly walks, why not take a look at just some of the wonderful blogs written by Jean over the past few months, who regularly attends the Tamar Valley Walk & Talk group on Wednesday mornings…

Once a month there is a Walk & Talk Plus (W&T+); this is a longer walk and a little more energetic!

Some walks will also use short train or bus journeys to reach suitable walk routes, please bring change and rail/bus passes if you have them.

For more information on joining any of the Walk & Talk events – such as if you’re unsure if a walk is for you – please contact the group organisers as stated on the programmes above.

Tamar Valley and Saltash walker Juliette has written a short article on Walk and Talk; we’ve published it on our blog here
