About the event

Outdoor walk – Shops & Shopkeepers of Calstock with member Jill Lane. 

Jill Lane in her book Calstock Shops & Shopkeepers tells the story of the many shops in Calstock and the families who ran them from the mid-19th century when Calstock was a busy river port with barges taking away granite and bricks and bringing in timber, coal and limestone. Pleasure boats came up from Plymouth, offloading passengers for cream teas. Calstock was a bustling town in those days and the book takes the reader along the streets telling of all the shops there were in the 19th century and into the 20th. 

We meet at 7pm in the carpark at Calstock. Text from where Jill’s book can be purchased. Photo is from that book.
