Calstock Parish is situated in south east Cornwall (UK), close to the Devon border. With a population of approximately 6,000 and 2,600 households, it comprises of a number of villages, the larger being Gunnislake and Calstock.

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.

A brief history of the Parish can be found on the Calstock History website. Which also hosts details of the Parish Archive.

  • Kernow King - All Hail the King

    Saturday 25 February
    Kernow King and Mary Woodvine
    written by Edward Rowe
    directed by Simon Harvey

    Trevithick is the gripping story of not just one of Cornwall's greatest sons, but one of the greatest men in history, steeped in accolade and loved by many but whose life was tinged with tragedy.

    A biographical comedy that will light a fire in your bellies, bring joy to your heart and set your brain whirring like a four way valve on a steam engine. This is the true story of a man who was as much an artist and magician as he was an engineer.

    Born in Tregajorran in Cornwall, Richard Trevithick revolutionised the use of steam as a successful and profitable means of energy, much to the annoyance of his rivals.  Industrial developments were rife with competition, fear, accidents and death in 1800 Great Britain, but it was Trevithick's passion and genius that led to steam power being put on rails and roads, the first trains and cars. 

    "Trevithick!" is ‘bursting’ with music, comedy and facts and is still relevant to the world we live in today. It  accurately brings to the stage the story of a man who was so dedicated and obsessed by engineering, he left his family in Cornwall whilst he mined in South America for eleven years.

  • Alison Hernandez's Monthly Report February 2017

    Alison Hernandez's monthly report brings you news from your Police and Crime Commissioner

    Monthly report - February 2017

    Safe, resilient and connected communities

    Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez will provide almost £24m additional money so that Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer can put more police officers on the streets by 2020.

    This month the PCC has published her first Police and Crime Plan, entitled Safe, resilient and connected communities, with a vow to help keep people safe by improving the public’s connection to police.

    The Plan comes as a result of the peninsula’s biggest consultation into policing issues, which Ms Hernandez commissioned last summer.
