In Eastern Cornwall, just before the border with Devon, the River Tamar winds its way narrowly through the Cornish countryside in narrow arches and partly deeply cut. It joins the English Channel near Plymouth and Calstock is about 14 miles earlier. Located on the slope of the steeply sloping terrain of the river, Calstock has two highlights: the nearby manor house with garden “Cotehele” and its viaduct for the railway. Built from massive iron-concrete blocks between 1904 and 1907, the very elegant structure has 12 arches and spans the Tamar River with a length of more than 300 metres and a height of up to 37 metres. On the northern side is Calstock railway station, which can only be reached via steep paths. It is connected to the regional line from Plymouth to Gunnislake. This path is overgrown and makes it feel as if you are in a “jungle”!
