Welcome to the official site for the Bude
Canal and Harbour Society.
Welcome to our new Tub Boat Editor - Chris Walton. The first Tub Boat of 2017 is very picture rich and as such is about 9MB - please let us know if this is too much - or too little as we can adjust this accordingly. Until the new site is ready we have provided access to a year's Tub Boats below.

adapted from article in revised Bude Canal Past and Present as below.
Jewell has been out photographing the Canal Regeneration from day
one . During much of the regeneration period the Canal towpaths,
locks and features have been closed to the public. Now you can see
how the wonderful regeneration took place - There are well over 400 photos and we have now completely redone the album - THE ALBUM IS FULLY RESPONSIVE AND EASY ON TABLETS AND PHONES in readiness for our new site coming soon. We also think it is more attractive to view,.
Remember the photos are copyrighted to Chris
so don't abuse his hard work - feel free to email comments.
