A village high up on the rim of Bodmin moor. The 15th century church is famous for the eccentric Rev. Frederick Densham, who became parish priest in 1931. Disliked by his parishioners, Rev Densham shut himself off from the rest of the world and kept the church locked most of the time. He preached to a congregation of cardboard images, propped up in the pews.

 

WASHAWAY (Bodmin)

Is a quiet village about seven miles south of Bude. Its history dates from the time of Domesday when it was probably the religious centre of the district - a Harvest Revel is held every September. The great lady of Week St. Mary was Thomasine Bonaventure, a local shepherdess who was taken to London by a rich merchant. Here she married three Lords in turn, the last Sir John Percival who became Lord Mayor in 1497. When he died she came back to her village home as Lady Bountiful. She built a school which has now become a group of cottages, she endowed a chantry in the church and left the vicar of Liskeard a beautiful chalice.

 

WIDEMOUTH BAY (nr Bude)

More Information on Advent Tourist Information Official Web Site

Just south of Bude, lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the North Cornish coast. Facing the Atlantic, the beach is ideal for surfing and a paradise for children with its beautiful stretch of golden sand and innumerable rock pools to explore. The justly famous Coastal Footpath runs along the cliff-top in either direction and offers walkers a superb panorama of the coastline and surrounding countryside. There are two large car parks next to the beach, each with its own cafe and toilets.
