A productive winter!

Tamar Trails in the Winter

“While most people are hiding indoors during the cold, wet and short days recently, our intrepid Valley Volunteers have been out there putting in the new sign posts that will guide visitors to the Trails.
The work is continuing each week now and should be complete by Easter. A volunteer group also created a short, easy walking route from near the car park up to the Mineral Railway Trail.
A volunteer group from Bardon Aggregates at Greystone Quarry arrived in December and spent a day creating a short new easy cycle route to the Mineral Railway Trail. This will take visitors more obviously onto the level Trail that goes on to Devon Great Consuls, and to Morwell and Gawton if heading south. The group came complete with surfacing material and a small digger and dumper, courtesy of Tamar Community Trust, and blended in the new piece of Trail expertly to the existing paths: look out for both new routes, on the right when leaving the Tamar Trails car park on your next visit!”

It really makes a big difference to us having the volunteers dedicate their time to improving and maintaining the Tamar Trails. Having well looked after paths makes everyone’s walk, cycle and ride much more enjoyable.

If you are interested in taking part, meeting like minded people and just getting some fresh air (you may even be treated to a bowl of Daves lovely homemade soup with a crusty piece of bread if you’re lucky) then you can find out more by clicking on Valley Volunteers or calling the Tamar Valley AONB on 01822 835 030
