Camel Trail to Bodmin Jail: A digital postcard from Cornwall

The hugely popular cycle trail from Padstow alongside the beautiful Camel river estuary to Wadebridge continues through to the market town of Bodmin with its imposing historic jail with eerie stories about past inmates makes for a great day out for all the family to remember.

The iconic Camel Trail provides access to the beautiful Cornish countryside along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. Running through both a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) the Camel Trail is an 18 mile largely traffic free, surfaced and virtually level multi use trail which passes through some of the most spectacular countryside in the south west.

Bodmin Jail (alternatively Bodmin Gaol) is a historic former prison situated in Bodmin, on the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. Built in 1779 and closed in 1927 and now an all weather family attraction.
