- Wadebridge is a well appointed rural town with a wide variety of specialist shops, now bypassed by the A39
the long traffic queues are a thing of the past. The bridge built during the 15th
centaury is the lowest crossing on the River Camel. During the 19th century
Wadebridge was busy as a port exporting
tin and wool from the local area and from the Bodmin area via what was then one of
earliest railways opened in 1834 now sadly closed. One can however
follow the track bed on foot or by cycle to Bodmin. The extension of that line to
Padstow is now part of the Camel Trail. The Cornwall County Agricultural Show now has its permanent
home 1ml west at White Cross.
