Devonport’s Column Bakehouse Bread to arrive at new Calstock market by train


Fresh bread from a bakery in Devonport will be travelling by train to Calstock this Saturday (3 May) to be sold at a new monthly produce market in the Tamar Valley village.

Baked by Column Bakehouse based at Devonport Guildhall, the bread will be taken on the  08 54 Tamar Valley Line train from Devonport to Calstock, arriving in time for the start of the market in Calstock Village Hall at 10 00.  Plans are for bread to travel up from Devonport every month for the market.

Food and drink which has been grown or made in the Tamar Valley will also be on-sale including meat, veg, apple juice, jams and preserves, honey, flowers, pastries, puddings, herbs and plants.

The market is being run by Tamar Grow Local and the bread transport has been arranged by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership with train operator, First Great Western.  First Great Western is carrying the bread free of charge.

David Crome from First Great Western said: “First Great Western is committed to supporting the communities we serve, and, surrounded by some of the finest ingredients in the World, we are happy to be able to help deliver produce to this market. “Following the ethos of our Pullman Dining and 50:15 local food campaign, what better way to support the community than to transport produce direct to the community.”

Rebecca Catterall from the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership said:  “The railway has a history of transporting food, as well as people. In its heyday, the Market Gardens of the Tamar Valley sent thousands of packages of fruit and flowers around the country from stations along the line.”

Claire Burgess, Commercial Manager at Devonport Guildhall said: “There is a real appetite for high quality, locally sourced food and drink so it’s wonderful to see a new Food Market for Calstock. We’re incredibly excited to be involved and will be sending a range of handmade, artisan breads to the market from the Bakehouse at Devonport Guildhall. The fact we can take the bread to market by train from our bakery in Devonport, means fewer food miles, resulting in a much reduced environmental impact.”

Simon Platten from Tamar Grow Local added: ‘We have a great range of small producers in the valley now and hope the new Calstock market will be a good showcase for them and encourage more people to shop locally. We are thrilled to be partnering with Column Bakehouse and First Great Western to use the railway to transport produce around the valley and hope we can make more use of the river and railways with our events over the year ahead. “

The market will take place in Calstock Village Hall between 10 00 and 14 00. The Peace and Cake café will also be open on Saturday. For those wishing to go to the produce market, an adult Off Peak Day Return from Plymouth to Calstock is £5.40, child £2.70 under 5s travel free.  Full details of train times and fares are available from National Rail Enquiries on 08457 48 49 50 or at www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk.

Calstock Village Hall is located on the Quay, a few minutes’ walk from the station.
