Improved access and support for the community means that more people can discover this diverse natural landscape.

The Tamara Coast to Coast Way runs along the Devon and Cornwall border and links with the South West Coast Path. The seven-day walking trail begins at Cremyll, overlooking Plymouth Sound and follows the River Tamar through the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It includes the Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site before finishing at Marsland Mouth, near Morwenstow. Shorter walk options have been created so that more people can get involved.

The route provides people with the opportunity to explore more of the stunning south-west landscape – to connect with nature and the heritage found in the Tamar Valley.

A brighter future for the Tamar Valley

The Tamara Coast to Coast Way is part of the wider Tamara Landscape Partnership Scheme, which has been supported with a £2.4million grant. The five-year project works with farmers, landowners and communities to manage and enhance the landscape, increase access and provide training and community events.

Martin Howlett, Chair of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, describes the route as: "a golden opportunity to both local walkers and visitors alike to explore, enjoy and truly appreciate the best of the West Country, its farming and natural environment, working in harmony within this special and unique landscape.”

Lorna Sherriff, National Trail Officer for the South West Coast Path Association, says: "The coast to coast route provides people with the opportunity to explore and walk through more of the stunning south-west landscape to connect with nature and the heritage found in the Tamar Valley."
