Much of the Parish is within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is also part of  a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The fine landscape includes granite ridges, woodlands and rolling farm land. The River Tamar, with its attractive waterfront areas, forms the eastern border of the Parish. Within the Parish are many impressive remains of mine workings. The Parish has miles of footpaths and other public rights of way. Many of these form part of the East Cornwall Trails.

There is a train service to Plymouth with stations at both Gunnislake and Calstock. A scheduled bus service serves part of the Parish and connects with Callington and Tavistock. In summer there is local ferry service on the River Tamar from Calstock to Cotehele.

  • BESN Free Energy Advice Workshops 2016

    Dear all


    CRCC are hoping to be able to continue delivering energy advice sessions again this year subject to funding. So we thought it may be useful to start taking bookings now so we can make sure we can deliver sessions to as many groups as possible between September 2016 and March 2017 – any type of community group ie women’s institute, carers group, memory café, etc. These sessions could help individuals save money on their household bills. We are happy to tailor the sessions to suit needs, i.e. one to one or as a group.


    For further information and to book your session, please see the attached leaflet.  Also please feel free to forward this email to any contacts you feel may benefit from this free advice opportunity.


    Kind regards.
