Travel Tips for Bodmin
Ancient and Ancient
I was not entirely alone in this old Chapel. I discovered these two rathere forlorn characters standing in a corner. It seemed such a shame for them to be there, obviously deteriorating in the open air. I have no idea of their history, and there was no one available to ask.
Not sure where to put this tip but it is an emportant one.
Any seasoned traveller will tell you that toilets are paramount!
The Bodmin public toilets are situated near the town centre just round the corner from Mount Folly near the park.
'You're in the Army Now!'
If you have the time, take a look around the museum of the DCLI. The Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, afterwards known as the Somerset and Cornwall Light Infantry, and now just the Light Infantry. Full of historic memorabilia of the former famous Regiments. badges, uniforms and weapons.
Lanhydrock House & Gardens
Bodmin is a typical small Cornish town of about 14,000 people, situated on steep hills beside the River Fowey and located about mid-way between the north and south coasts of the county. Because the A30 highway (the main road artery into Cornwall) runs past the town, my wife and I have driven by on many occasions over the years as we travelled further west to visit relatives living closer to Land's End.
However, one stop did involve a tour of an amazing old estate just outside Bodmin that is reported to be the 10th most visited of all the National Trust properties in England - Lanhydrock House and its beautiful gardens. This small page recounts remembrances of that visit, despite the fact that no interior photos of the house are allowed due to National Trust rules.
