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.
