Welcome to the official site for the Bude Canal and Harbour Society.
Boat Trip on the River Tamar visiting Morwellham Quay on Sat 20th July 2013
This year, for our annual outing, we have arranged a coach trip to Plymouth for a boat trip on the “Plymouth Princess” from the Barbican to Morwellham Quay. When we first arrive at Plymouth there will be time to take lunch or explore the Barbican and Sutton Harbour before we board the boat at 1.00pm for the 1½ hour trip up the River Tamar to Morwellham Quay. We will return to Bude by coach leaving Morwellham at 5.00pm.
The combined fare for the coach, boat trip on the River Tamar and admission to Morwellham Quay is £25.00 per adult and £20.00 for children.
Hopefully you may have a few minutes to complete a quick survey on the Bude Canal and Marshes and how you and your family use these facilities. It really only takes a couple of minutes and will provide very useful information for those planning how the areas will be used in the future. Please have your say. You can print off the survey here

Canal Regeneration Bude
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.
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!
