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
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
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.
