Welcome to the official site for the Bude Canal and Harbour Society.
Bude Canal and Marshes wins top award for the FIFTH year in a row
A Prestigious GREEN FLAG
The Bude Canal and Marshes have been awarded the Green Flag from Keep Britain Tidy for the fifth consecutive year. The award is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Paula Dolphin, Liberal Democrat Cornwall Councillor for Grenville and Statton and a former Mayor of Bude, said "Bude Canal and Marshes is one of the reasons tourists visit this part of Cornwall. As the chair of the advisory panel I know how difficult it is to be awarded a Green Flag for the fifth time and we couldn't have done it without the passionate volunteers that help our team."
You can vote for Bude to be your favourite Green Flag Park by visiting www.greenflagaward.org.uk

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!
