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.

Hospital Cars - A message from Adrian Parsons


October 2021
Hospital Cars

I am concerned regarding the closure of local healthcare facilities which is causing residents inconvenience and in some cases distress, where there is a difficulty in arranging suitable transport, in having to travel further for treatments and appointments.

With Altarnun Parish Council’s support I want to promote the hospital car services that are provided via Age UK and Volunteer Cornwall. By contacting either of these bodies, with as much prior notice as possible, at least 48 hours, a door to door car service should be bookable. I must stress these services are currently for pre booked appointments only and no other purpose.

Please make note of these numbers and use when required. Costs will apply and will be discussed in detail at the time of booking. Drivers will normally be a member of our local community, which makes things a little more comfortable and personal.

Age UK 01872 223388

Volunteer Cornwall 01872 265300

In our area both bodies are looking to recruit volunteer drivers. Again contact for application is through these telephone numbers. Milage is paid at 42p per mile and full induction training is given free of charge.

Cornwall Councillor Adrian Parsons
