The first Oak Tree Surgery walking for health group met on Tuesday 7th May 2013. It was a fine sunny day and everyone enjoyed this first walk in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All patients of the surgery will be most welcome and we look forward to seeing more walkers in the coming weeks.
Walking Group - Review of 2017
We have had another varied year of walks and it has been good to welcome so many new faces. The weather has been disappointing this year which has resulted in quite a few cancellations, more than the other years put together!
However we have had many memorable trips, we went across the border into Devon on two occasions, by rail to Plymouth to follow the Hoe History trail, which was a glorious day and very interesting, and to Luckett and across the border to Horseshoe bridge for a welcome drink.
We ventured onto Bodmin moor following the Caradon trail, making a circuit of Caradon Hill, a Quoits, Crows and Copper walk from Crows Nest and Warleggan, where we were unexpectedly joined by a farmer and his dog, who took us up Carburrow Tor which has a fascinating collection of cairns and hut circles, and what a view. I recommend it.
The coast was not neglected as we had several scenic walks from Portwrinkle , Seaton, Talland , Whitsands and Llansallos, new territory for a lot of the walkers.This is some of us having a coffee break, before a climb up East Combe.

We made some forays into the river valleys and woods, with visits to St Neot, Lanhydrock, for the amazing bluebells, Cardinham, and Newbridge. Finally we always explore a town and this time it was Saltash Town Trail which was enjoyed by all.
If you think you would be interested in exploring new and familiar places in good company do come and join us. We meet in the sugary car park on 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, leaving at 10am.
We look forward to seeing you.
