Bodmin was previously known as the County town of Cornwall and the only location within Cornwall to be documented in the Domesday Book which was held at the local prison during the 1st World War.
The name ‘Bodmin’ originates from the word Bod-Minachau, meaning ‘the abode of monks’ which coincides with Bodmin’s religious heritage from this period. ST Petroc’s Church was named after the Welsh Saint of Irish education who visited Cornwall in the sixth century and founded Petrockstow (Padstow).
