Cover - TF guide 2014Join the Tamar Valley AONB team during May half-term week for their annual Tamar Trail Festival; packed with 25 events and activities for you to enjoy throughout the Valley.

Or you may choose to visit one of three exhibitions – Cornish geology, market gardening in the Tamar Valley or Cornwall Open Studios. The ever-popular guided tours of Greystone Quarry are back for you to enjoy, or you may prefer to spend some time mountain biking or canoeing. Other events include a bug hunt at Drakewalls Mine, Nightjar walk & talk, Tamar Grow Local’s food market and a chance to learn more about waterpower at Morwellham.

IMG_0629The Trail Festival celebrates the £7 million Mining Heritage Project that conserved the rich mining heritage of the Tamar Valley.

Becki Lumbis, Education & Community Resource Officer for the Tamar Valley AONB, says, “The Festival highlights the work achieved, including the conservation of mining remains, enhancement of important wildlife habitats, creation of 25km of multi-use trails, and the opening of the Tamar Trails Centre at Gulworthy – the hub for exploring the Tamar Trails and our mining heritage. There’s something for all ages & abilities, we’re looking forward to seeing you!”

Many events are FREE of charge, but we are expecting the Festival to be popular, so please book your places early to avoid disappointment.


The Tamar Trail Festival, encouraging you to discover more within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will run from Monday 26th May – Sunday 1st June. FREE guides will be available from local outlets towards the end of April, or download your FREE programme of events now.
