 Along the river at Bude

At Bude the River Neet (or Strat) runs along the edge of town then by the beach.


The river in Bude

Another of the river nearing the beach and the sea.  In the background is the Castle Hotel to the left hidden from view a large and convenient car park.


Bude sea lock

Looking the other way the river meets the sea lock for the canal beside the expanse of Summerleaze beach.


Summerleaze beach, Bude

Turning slightly you can see more of the beach, not sure how far in the tide comes but here there was plenty of room for allcomers!


River and canal at Bude

Looking back inland you can see the river, Castle Hotel and people walking on the canal towpath.


Footbridge over the river at Bude

This little bridge crosses the river right by the lock into the canal.



Sea lock on Bude Canal

The sea lock at the end of the Bude Canal, I don't think you could get very large vessels in as the entrance looks well silted with sand from the joining river.


Bude canal sea lock

A wider view showing how river, canal and beach blend together here.


Boats on the beach at Bude

Boats left high and dry by the tide with the Atlantic rollers in the background.
