Walk this way and let the guides show you more of the Tamar

By Contributor in Local People

JOIN heritage guides for the Tamar Valley area over the next four months on a series of walks throughout the valley, celebrating the very best of the area in spring.

Guides Les Deering and Ann Marcer completed a nine-week course last year, led by local Blue Badge Guide Chrissie Le Marchant. The course covered presentation skills, organising and running events, leading guided walks and research techniques. It was organised as part of the Heritage Lottery funded Helping Hands for Heritage project.

This season, Les focuses his walks around the bridges and crossings of the Tamar Valley, while Ann explores the Bere Peninsula and Tavistock’s rich heritage.

The walks programme begins this month and includes a history walk in Weir Quay and walks to explore Milton Abbot and Greystone Bridge, Sydenham Damerel and Horsebridge and Gunnislake, New Bridge and Clitters, among other areas.

Pick up your free walks programme in local outlets throughout the Tamar Valley area, or view a copy online at www.tamarvalley.org.uk

Please dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear for walking and bring a drink. Be prepared for hills and muddy paths. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

There is no charge for the walks but donations are welcome. All proceeds will help to keep the Tamar Valley of Outstanding Natural Beauty special for all to enjoy. Booking is not essential, but would be appreciated.
