We’ve made a map! Transition Tavistock, through our Travel Action Group, commissioned a bespoke street map covering the whole town to help residents and visitors pick walkable routes for trips across it, including the many pedestrian cut-throughs and green spaces.

Thanks to funding from West Devon BC, Devon CC, LiveWest, The Lions Club of Tavistock and Active Devon, printed copies are available free.
We welcome additional volunteers and collaboration with other local organisations with an interest in encouraging everyday walking and removing barriers to it. Do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
