Cultural Activities  

Given Calstock is in the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, there are numerous cultural sites to visit. The nearby Okeltor mine and Cotehele House National Trust property give you a good feel of the industrial history of the area. Morwellham Quay, a historic river port in Devon with its own copper mine and open-air museum is a great way to spend an afternoon. The visitor centre and prison museum in Princetown provides something a bit different – an explanation of prison life.
