Canal Regeneration Bude

Report on the Regeneration Project

- adapted from article in revised Bude Canal Past and Present as below.

Photo Album

Chris 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 - We have had a resuffle of the photos so to speak, taken some off and added some NEW ones. Curently there are 422 photographs from Chris' album and they are here for you to enjoy. Remember the photos are copyrighted to Chris so don't abuse his hard work - feel free to email comments.

Begin your voyage of discovery of Bude Canal Regeneration here

Start by clicking on the albums and then the pictures to enlarge them and move back and forth to view them - there is a help button too - please be patient - the pictures are detailed and some computers will take a few more seconds to download - it's worth the wait!
