Wadebridge has been noted in the past for being the town between Bodmin with its Gaol and Padstow famed for its historic harbour and more recently renowned Chef. Following the demise of the railway but since the arrival of the Camel Trail, many thousands of visitors travel to Wadebridge for its own delights.
To arrive at Wadebridge, the traveller may have left the A30 at the Kennards House junction travelling through Camelford and down the beautiful Allen Valley which glows blue with the bluebells in Spring and soft green in the summer; a welcome shaded sanctuary from the sun. In the Autumn leaves of every colour scatter under the driver's wheels and winter is softer here than many other parts.
That same driver might also leave the A30 at Bodmin, following a well signed route through the town, over the Camel Trail where once a railway level crossing dissected the road near the 'Borough Arms' where a hearty meal can be found near journey's end. Over the widened river bridge, up past Dunmere Wood and on to Wadebridge.
