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 at Trewint/Five Lanes and building public conveniences in Altarnun and a bus shelter in Bolventor.

Make big savings by Bus - Any bus Any route


July 2022
Transport for Cornwall Bus

As many of us have started to return to going into work, rather than working from home, now's a good time to consider commuting by bus.

You could save money and help Cornwall cut its carbon emissions into the bargain.

We're working with bus operators in Cornwall on a series of initiatives to support our decarbonisation plans and make travelling by bus more attractive.

The Make Big Savings By Bus scheme has reduced bus fares so that single tickets now start at just £1.60 and returns from £2.40.

Great value Town Zone tickets are £2.50 and Cornwall-wide Day Tickets are just £5.

You can find more information on this and our bus services from: Read more on fares and bus services

With Cornwall leading the way in making it easier for people to travel by bus, Transport Minister Baroness Vere MP visited Truro this week to find out more about Cornwall Council’s bus fares pilot.

A first for a local authority, the  scheme was launched in April and has significantly cut the cost of bus travel for residents in Cornwall with fares on average now a third cheaper.

The pilot follows the council’s successful bid for £23.5m in government funding and involves bus companies including First South West and Go Cornwall Bus working in partnership as Transport for Cornwalll.

During her visit at an event in Lemon Quay (July 26, 2022), Baroness Vere, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Transport, spoke with bus companies and council representatives to hear more about the next steps for the costs-saving pilot.

This sees new Tap & Cap technology introduced to allow passengers using contactless payments to ‘tap on and tap off’ - capping their payments so that no matter how many journeys they make, passengers pay no more than £5 a day or £20 a week.
