This is a gentle walk on a tarmac walkway along part of Drake’s Trail from Yelverton to Drake’s Cafe, Grenofen for a light lunch then returning to Yelverton.

How to find us: From Plymouth, take the A386 towards Yelverton. As you approach the Welcome to Yelverton sign, look for and take the next turning left for Leg o’ Mutton. Stay on the road to the cattle grid and meet us in the free car park on the right just past the cattle grid.
Why are we walking?: To raise funds for the charities that the club are supporting this year – Alzheimer’s Society and Teenage Cancer Trust.
We will be joined by International Speedwalker, Edmund Shillabeer who is a member of the club. He will be using this walk as part of his training programme and will be offering a prize to the person who correctly guesses how long it will take him to walk the 7 mile route. Please bring a £1 coin to take part in this fun competition.
