Wednesday 4 July 2018 – Along the waterfront & over the hill: Calstock

Join Caradon Monthly Walkers for a varied walk with lovely panoramic views. However, to see the views we have to climb up from river level to the ridge above Calstock – which commands such far-reaching views that it is where the Romans built a fort – and then back down again. Just under 5 miles. Strenuous in parts but quite a lot is easy walking.

Date/time: Wednesday 4 July. Meet from 10.00 am for 10.30am start. Returning at 3.00pm (very approx.)

Meeting point/parking/directions: Meet Calstock quay car park (free) which is behind the village hall PL18 9QA. In the unlikely event that car park is full, there is further parking at Calstock Station PL18 9QY approx. 5 mins walk away.

Dogs: Well-controlled dogs on leads please as we are on using lanes for parts of the walk.

Toilets: Public toilets at the car park in Calstock. We may be able to use the loo at St Andrews Church around lunchtime for a donation.

Refreshments: Bring a packed lunch. There is a convenience store in a bus in the car park that will be open before we set off if you need to buy a picnic (but not when we get back). After the walk you may wish to head to the Tamar Inn for liquid refreshments (they don’t seem to do food all day), Lishe tea shop or the Honesty Box Café in the boatyard in Lower Kelly. Valenti’s ice cream shop may be open (fingers crossed).

Distance/difficulty/hazards: About 5¾ miles. Traffic on lanes & roads. No stiles or steps. Mostly quite pleasant walking but we can’t pretend there aren’t hills before lunch.
