Welcome to the website of Altarnun Parish Council


(St Nonnas - The Cathedral on the Moor)

The parish of Altarnun lies on the eastern side of Bodmin Moor and covering 15,014 acres is the largest in Cornwall. From rugged moorland in the west, to the unspoilt villages of Altarnun and Bolventor, which boasts the world renowned Jamaica Inn,  onto picturesque hamlets and farmland in the east, the heart-warming diversity of rural Cornwall is reflected here. 

As an immensely proud community we endeavour to protect, preserve, and improve our bucolic environment for the benefit of all.  Recently this has included influencing the provision of sufficient affordable housing for local people, road safety and traffic management improvements, installing a public access defibrilator and building public conveniences in Altarnun.

DOG WALKERS Please bear in mind that this is now the lambing and calving season and when walking your charges anywhere near farm animals please have them on a lead.

Mill Green Phone Box Library


February 2021
The Library - pre completion (stock photo only)

A decision has been taken to delay the opening of the library facility until the current government restrictions are lifted and it is deemed safe to do so.

We are delighted that the library is now ready to go and serve the community but at the same time are frustrated by the circumstances we are dealing with. However, there has been a massive effort throughout the community to get to this point, for this the parish council is very grateful, and we can assure you that a substantial stock of literature waiting to be installed and consumed! 

Cornwall Council Car Parks During Lockdown


January 2021
Cornwall Council Car Park Notice of Charges

Cornwall Council will suspend parking charges in all of its car parks until 17th May 2021 as part of efforts to further limit the spread of coronavirus and to support residents.

The move will mean that some civil enforcement officers and back room staff, due to a reduced service, can be redeployed to support the Council’s Covid-19 response, as well as help residents who rely on on-street parking at home, or live in resident only parking zone areas.
