Much to be seen in Bodmin

Much to be seen in Bodmin

While a lot of people looking for a new location to live in may be turning towards somewhere which offers them many shops or pubs and clubs, or great commuter links to a larger city that they may wish to work in, there will also be others who are attracted to an area because of its picturesque quality, or what it offers them in terms of historical scenery and cultural sites to visit.

If this is the sort of place you are seeking out when you are moving home this year, then why not take the opportunity to take a look at property for sale in Bodmin? The town is located in the south-west of the country, in Cornwall, and is full of historically relevant places where people can visit to learn more about the culture of the town.

One of the most significant pieces of local architecture that residents may wish to visit is the 18th century Bodmin Gaol. Despite the fact that it now is in a state of slight ruin, the building was operational as a prison for around 150 years, and offers residents and visitors the chance to learn about the judicial system from days gone by in Cornwall.

People who have an interest in the military history of the country can also visit the now defunct barracks of the  Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, which is now a regimental museum, a perfect place to visit for those who are former army personnel or just have an interest in learning about the way things used to be done.

Other places people may like to visit include Bodmin Beacon Local Nature Reserve, which is located on a hill just outside of the town itself. This makes a perfect place to visit for people who want to take up hillwalking or rambling to stay fit, especially those who are in the latter reaches of their lives and want to take the chance to make a new start in the south-west.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801353352-ADNFCR
