Camelford - Cornwall
Situated on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Camelford is the starting place to climb Rough Tor; at 1311 ft, the second highest hill in Cornwall, with many spectacular views.
One mile north of the village is Slaughterbridge, the reputed site of King Arthur's last battle against his nephew Mordred, the Battle of Camlann. Sir Bedivere is reputed to have flung the sword Excaliber into nearby Dozmary Pool. In Camelford itself, the North Cornwall Museum and Gallery offers a fascinating look at Cornish life over the past century, including many items connected with the local slate industry, now defunct. One mile north of town, the British Cycling Museum in the old railway station displays some 400 cycles in all stages of their development.
