Concept: A walking, cycling and driving circuit of Bodmin via the FIVE churches of the Bodmin Team Ministry
Pilgrimage . History . Heritage . Arts . Health
The Bodmin Way provides an opportunity to welcome tourists and pilgrims, and in the process, re-engage local people. The idea centres around a walking, cycling or driving tour that connects each of the team churches and encircles Bodmin.
The tour around the Bodmin Way will attract people in different ways:
· It offers a heritage and historical trail, with the churches presenting the histories of the various villages and town
· It offers a spiritual pilgrimage for the increasing numbers of people attracted to this experience.
· It sits half way along the Saints Way and thus offers an extended version of this popular trail.
· Similarly, it sits along the new Celtic Way, promoted by the Diocese of Truro and will draw its pilgrims.
A cycling version of the tour means that The Bodmin Way offers Camel Trail tourists and other cyclists a reason to come into the town and explore its surrounds.
The walking routes cannot be used as cycle routes.
