The Industrial History of Calstock – walk from the train

This article is more than 11 months old.

This Sunday (20th August) join ‘Walks with History’ and the Tamara Landscape Partnership on a history walking tour through Calstock where you’ll explore Okel Tor Mine, the Roman Fort excavations and enjoy beautiful and far-reaching views of the Tamar Valley.

Times and details

Meet at Plymouth railway station at 10:45, ready for the train to depart at 11:10. Alternatively, you can meet on the train along the route at either Devonport (11:13), Dockyard (11:14), Keyham (11:16), St Budeaux Victoria Road (11:20), Bere Ferrers (11:27) or Bere Alston (11:36).

The walk is 4 miles long with flat, uphill and downhill sections and will go ahead regardless of the weather, so sensible walking shoes are a must. There will also be a short break, so please bring a packed lunch.

The train back from Calstock departs at 16:22, arriving into Plymouth at 17:00.


The walk is free other than the rail fare to get to Calstock – £7.50 Off-Peak Day Return from Plymouth station, or £4.95 with the GroupSave discount. If you are not meeting at Plymouth and joining from another station, you will need to purchase your ticket in advance or on board.
