Calstock Footpath Society AGM Report

Calstock Footpath Society have just celebrated their 30th AGM, preceded by a walk of course!

New officers were sworn in and the Chairman reported another successful year with interesting walks covering many miles and work parties clearing paths and streams and the near conclusion of the ongoing new Walks Guides. Four leaflets have already been printed, with the remaining six soon to be completed. The walks are listed on the web site and can be easily downloaded and printed off or picked up at various locations including those who supported the project.

WhealBrothersMine-smA four-mile walk, fairly easy going on roadways, cart track, and public footpaths through woodland and fields, with stiles and kissing gates. There are some climbs and descents. We shall go up via the Coombe, then down past All Saints Church to Wheal Brothers mine. The route can be very muddy so walking shoes or boots are recommended.

The walk includes an optional stop at Louis Tea Rooms on Kit Hill. Sorry, unsuitable for dogs. Non-members will be asked for a donation of £2.
