Bodmin is the former county town of Cornwall. It was the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was actually lodged in the town’s prison during the First World War. The name is derived from Bod-minachau, meaning the home of monks, suggesting that it was originally a religious settlement. The entry in the Domesday Book records that the town was held by St Petroc’s Church and that there were 68 houses and a market in the 11th century.

On the northern edge of the town, close to the start of the Camel Trail is the rather forbidding Bodmin Jail. It was originally built in 1779 and was improved and expanded during the early 19th century. The present buildings date mainly from 1860 and between then and 1927 when it was finally closed
