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.
you are local or a tourist,
you are alone or with family and friends,
you see a spiritual dimension to pilgrimage or the health benefits only,
you are interested in heritage or enjoy the great outdoors,
you are a walker, cyclist, horse-rider, driver or passenger …
The Bodmin Way is for you!
