walking The Bodmin Way
Ideas for walking the route:
1 Complete the whole 21 mile circuit in a day, resting at each location and uncover the history and art of the churches; which are open daily from around 10am to 4pm.
2 Take in all five locations, over two days, going anti-clockwise from Cardinham to Bodmin to Nanstallon to Lanivet, stay overnight at Lanivet and continue the next day to Lanhydrock and back to Cardinham.
3 Set off from one location, walk to the next and back, from the choice of Cardinham to Bodmin, Bodmin to Nanstallon, Nanstallon to Lanivet, Lanivet to Lanhydrock and Lanhydrock to Cardinham, arranging a lift home.
Five leaflets giving a map and written directions for the walking routes from one location to the next are available from the Bodmin Information Centre at Shire Hall, St Petroc's and Centre, St Meubred's, St Hydroc's and Lanivet Church.
The walking routes cannot be used as cycling routes.
Record your walks along the Bodmin Way route by stamping your Bodmin Way passport at each church. Passports are available from the same place as the leaflets mentioned above.
Take the circular route from St Petroc's Church.
Choice of two or three miles.
The leaflet gives written instructions and a map.
For extra enjoyment and challenge complete the quiz questions as you walk.

The 21 mile route in 21 minutes!
Digital Media lecturer and businessman Fin Davis walked the 21 miles of The Bodmin Way walking route with a Go-Pro and produced the footage given here.
Bodmin Way commissioned this because it wants
The Bodmin Way to be inclusive.
Now, those who are unable to walk The Bodmin Way,
are able to see the route and inside the historic churches, compacted to 21 minutes, in the comfort of their own home.
