Bodmin is the former county town of Cornwall before Truro took over the role.

This inland town has been expanded over the years but much of the old town of granite buildings can still be seen situated around Bodmin Beacon.

Most people link Bodmin with Bodmin Moor made famous by the works of Daphne du Maurier and, at Jamaica Inn, there is a small museum commemorating the author.

All too often people ignore inland Cornwall but Bodmin has historical interest, is surrounded by countryside and connected to everywhere else in Cornwall by train or road.
