Help connect Callington

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Callington’s Slow Ways.

Callington—Calstock

David Sanderson added Calscal one, a new walk from Callington to Calstock

The first part of this route was stunning , however once past Golberdon it started to suggest walking through public rights of way across fields that were impassable as they had not been maintained or took you straight through crops. I would not suggest walking this route especially in summer. I walked on the roads instead and this was a much better route, quiet and safer than wading through nettles and dense overgrowth....

The route follows a narrow single file, windy road which has no space to walk off road, and as it is one of the main points to cross the river Tamar there are many large vehicles and lorries frequently using this road. There are cars that use this road but it is only one way and the cars are coming up the road behind you and it is a wide road so it fine to walk....

Just SW of Callington the route follows a right of way across a field; this is marked on the OS map but the farmer obviously ignored the memos about maintaining public access. An alternative route out of Callington to Newbridge which would avoid this difficult section could be via Frogwell Lane. Vehicles will approach at pace with relatively little warning of your presence due to the way the road turns and the number of trees. Once across, however, the section along the river is a real highlight of the route. At OS ref SX341666 (What3Words: seaweed.eliminate.canyons) the route on the website turns east over a field and then across the River Lynher, before taking a path south towards Pillaton. Just past the Waitrose at Saltash, the route turns east, downhill along a bridleway. As a local, I would definitely advise not bothering with this off-road section: about half of it is right next to the A38 dual carriageway anyway; the remainder offers little in the way of nice scenery other than a brief view of the River Tamar from (almost) sea level, before a steep climb back up into Saltash town. Instead, take the footbridge across the A38 and continue south into Saltash, past the industrial estates, and down into the town centre via Callington Road, past Saltash FC and Longstone Park....

The first bit out of Tavistock to Harvest Home is really interesting. No pavement/verge between Harvest Home and Gunnislake so you have to really aware of making sure you are visible on the road so cars can give you space....
