A little more on Camelford

Camelford is situated in the River Camel valley,  northwest of Bodmin Moor, north Cornwall.

 

Camelford is the home of the North Cornwall Museum and Gallery which contains paintings and objects of local historical interest.

 

To the east are the hills of Roughtor and Brown Willy - the two highest points in Cornwall.

 

The parish church of Camelford is at Lanteglos by Camelford although there is also a Church of St Thomas of Canterbury (opened in 1938) in the town.

 

The place-name Camelford, first recorded in the early 13th century, contains the Cornish elements camm ‘crooked’, and alan, a common Celtic name for a river. The English suffix ‘ford’ was probably added later, presumably when the settlement developed around a crossing point on the river.

 

Did you know...?

 

Camelford has been linked to the legendary Camelot, and the battle of Camlann - reputed to have been the final battle of King Arthur.

Quoted from Wikipedia

With Camelford's location close to the north Cornish coast, it is an excellent base to tour north Cornwall as well as a variety of other interesting visitor attractions; Roughtor & Brown Willy, Jamaica Inn, Siblyback Lake,  Colliford Lake, Dozmary Pool  and more (click here for list of attractions).
