Wadebridge (Cornish: Ponsrys) is a market town in North Cornwall, England, UK, with a population of 6 222 (Census 2001). The town is located on the Camel Estuary, some 5 miles (8 km) upstream from Padstow.
For many years Wadebridge was a traffic congested town but in 1991 the Wadebridge bypass was opened together with the Egloshayle bypass causing the two settlements to regain much of their former charm. The main shopping street in Wadebridge (Molesworth Street) has subsequently become pedestrianized through an inner link road, allowing traffic free shopping.
The nearest Station is Bodmin Parkway which connects to London Paddington via principle settlements including Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol and Reading. Other services are available to Cardiff. These services, along with all local services within Cornwall, are operated by First Great Western.
Other train operators include Virgin Trains (which operate Cross-Country routes to the North of England and Scotland via Bristol and Birmingham) and Southwest Trains (who operate routes to London Waterloo).
Train services are frequent with roughly one train every half hour in each direction during the week.
