Opening of Cornish off-road trail

A "greenway" connecting people to places of work, leisure and learning has opened in Cornwall.

St Guron's Way is an off-road trail which link the two sides of the town of Bodmin.

It is hoped residents, pupils and workers on a nearby industrial estate will also use the path to walk or cycle in safety and away from traffic.

The trail skirts the edge of the Beacon Local Nature Reserve and runs alongside the Bodmin and Wenford railway.

North Cornwall District Council said many suggestions were made for the name of the new route.

It said St Guron's Way was chosen to reflect Bodmin's ecclesiastical roots from which the town developed.

St Guron was a hermit who is credited with founding Bodmin after establishing his "cell" near running water on the site of the present parish church.
