Description

Bodmin lies in the centre of Cornwall; the town’s name comes from an archaic word in the Cornish meaning ‘Monks Dwelling’, after St. Petroc took this as his site. Bodmin was the centre of three Cornish uprisings. The first was the Cornish Rebellion of spring 1497 when a Cornish army, marched to Blackheath in London where they were eventually defeated by 10,000 men of the King’s army.

In the autumn of 1497, Perkin Warbeck tried to usurp the throne from Henry VII. Warbeck was proclaimed King Richard IV in Bodmin, but King Henry crushed the uprising. Finally, in 1549, Cornishmen rose once again in rebellion when the staunchly Protestant Edward VI tried to impose a new Prayer Book. A Cornish army was formed in Bodmin which marched across the border to lay siege to Exeter in Devon. This became known as the Prayer Book Rebellion.

Bodmin is a quieter and friendlier place today, being the home of 232 Transport Squadron, 155 Transport Regiment, Royal Logistics Corps and the Headquarters of Cornwall Army Cadet Force, all of whom will extend you a very warm, Cornish welcome.

The Army Reserve Centre is a ten minute walk to the heart of the Bodmin, with easy access to local amenities, restaurants and essential shops. This is an ideal location to host conferences, exhibitions, meetings, lectures and tutorials. It can cater for functions both large and small, and a variety of formal and informal events. This venue benefits from on-site, secure parking for up to 30 cars.

Bodmin Parkway railway station is served by main line trains and is situated on the Cornish Main Line about 3½ miles (5½ km) south-east from the town centre. The bus link to Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow starts from outside the main entrance of Bodmin Parkway. Other bus and coach services connect Bodmin with other districts of Cornwall and Devon.
