Step into autumn with a new programme of FREE walks in the Tamar Valley, aimed at people who are looking to improve their health, meet new people and enjoy the fresh air and countryside that’s right on their doorstep.
The Tamar Valley AONB team is offering walks in the Saltash area each Monday, the Tamar Valley area will be explored on Wednesdays, and Gunnislake and Calstock will be the focus of walks taken at a gentler pace every Thursday.
Over the next three months walkers can look forward to a range of walks, including;
- discovering the rivers, railways and castles of Saltash
- strolling along the creeks to Antony passage
- following Drake’s Trail passing through Clearbrook & Meavy Bridge
- exploring the fields and footpaths of the Buckland Abbey Estate
- plus shorter walks around the Gunnislake and Calstock area.
Charlotte Dancer from the AONB team says, “We all know that walking can improve your health and happiness; autumn is a great time of year to get out and about, to enjoy the rich colours of the Tamar Valley and the many views that open up as the trees lose their leaves.”
All walkers are made to feel very welcome on these FREE walks, which are guided by fully trained walk leaders, who give plenty of support and encouragement. No need to book, just come along with a good pair of walking shoes or boots, for your comfort, and dress according to the weather. A drink and snack for the rest stop is advisable, and some walks use short train or bus journeys to reach suitable routes. Please bring change and rail/bus passes if you have them.
