Clues To Go     -     Bodmin to Port Isaac

This route removed, pending updates

The route starts in the town of Bodmin, although the questions don't start until you reach St. Mabyn. After passing through a string of historic settlements on the edge of Bodmin Moor, you conclude in the picturesque Port Isaac. You should have found all the answers before you reach this fishing village, but it makes a great place to pause for refreshments at the end of the route.

Other places worth visiting in the area are Tintagel, where a ruined castle on a cliff top is supposedly the birthplace of King Arthur. Also Boscastle, a picturesque fishing village hidden away in a sea inlet.

Camelford is said to be on the site of the mythical Camelot, although the modern town shows no similarity whatsoever to the popular image of King Arthur's castle.

Blisland has the largest village green in Cornwall and  has a very old, attractive parish church. St. Tudy, St. Mabyn, St. Teath, St. Breward, surprise, surprise, also boast beautiful, ancient churches, some of which feature in the questions on this route. Although you don't need to enter these places of worship to locate the answers, if they are open it is worth paying one or two of them a visit.

A large proportion of the route keeps to winding, very narrow country lanes. Please drive slowly through these and be aware that there may be horses, cyclists or walkers round the next bend. You're missing out on all that scenery if you hurry, anyway.
