Today however Bodmin is infamously known as Teen-mum capital of the South West, Chav Town and Scumville.
The best places for spotting these common lifeforms is as follows
Teen-mum(s): Outside Icelands in Fore Street, Wetherspoons pub and can also been seen smoking, swearing and spitting outside the infant schools
Chavs: Usually seen near cost-cutters or flocking like seagulls after the bin lorries on bin day.
You can fill your evenings in Bodmin at any of the numerous pubs, and later at the shitehole known as Eclipse, where you can buy booze for your children, drugs for yourself, or, if you are a young couple you could probably purchase a few children.
There is also fun to be had watching the Police trying to catch any escapees from St. Lawrence's mental ward, witnessing the boy racers screeching their Kevved up shitmobiles through the town centre, or if your stomach can handle it, watching said boy racers copulating with their underage, pasty skinned schoolie girlfriends down at Priory Park.
One other enjoyable daylight pastime is to have a walk along the delightful Camel Trail where you can treat yourself to the challenging sport of dodging dog shit, hypodermics and used condoms.
'Where are you from?'
Bodmin is also useful if you want to offend someone. Eg 1
''Are you from Bodmin''
''Haha, how's life down there, any murders recently?''
''I heard your mum was from bodmin?''
''That explains why she slept with my brother then...''
The usual solution is then to add an equal fraction of the bodmin to each persons share.
