Wadebridge is a lovely market town located approximately 5 miles from St Issey and Little Petherick and offers a wide selection of amenities including three supermarkets. There is also an abundance of quirky gift shops, art shops and boutiques as well as two butchers and a bakery (brilliant pasties!). Wadebridge also offers some great places to eat including Indian and Chinese restaurants, a bistro, some great café’s and a few traditional pubs. The camel trail is also easily accessed from here and bike hire is available.

The initial settlement of Wade (the name of Wadebridge before the bridge was built) was due to a ford in the River Camel. The early crossing had two chapels either side of the river “Kings” chapel on the north side and “St Michael’s” on the south side. People would pray for a safe crossing at one of the chapels before wading across at low tide, once they had made it the other side they would give thanks to God in the other chapel. The Reverend Thomas Lovibond became upset at the number of humans and animals that had died during the crossing of the river Camel so he planned the building of a bridge which was completed in 1468. Wade was now known as Wadebridge. When the bridge was first completed tolls used to be paid for the maintenance of the bridge.
