  • Updated May, 2019.  The Bude Circular Canal and Coast is a historically rich walk, filled with varied scenery and panoramic views.   The level path follows the Bude Canal, a remarkable relic of 19th century engineering, to its terminal as a barge waterway.  The wide open views from the fields of Whalesborough overlooking Widemouth Bay and the rugged cliffline to the south are without doubt, breath-taking, especially when the surf pounds the cost. Then there are the clifftops with their dramatic, geological formations, leading you to views overlooking Bude, its bay and beyond to Harland and Exmoor.
  • A circular route from the Tamar Lakes, crossing Devon's gently rolling landscape adn returning on the aqueduct section of the old Bude tub-boat Canal.
  • With fine views and some gloriously craggy, historic coastline, this coastal walk is a treat for any avid walker.  Highlights include the epic 731ft vantage point of high Cliff, as well as rare wildlife and curious Cornish history.  With a little planing ahead, walkers can also use public transport for the return journey after this emjoyable excursion.
  • Combining an easy route with dramatic views and rich history, this coastal walk is ideal for walkers of all abilities.  Most people can cover the five miles in about three hours.  If you are not continuing the walk to Port Isaac, there is a good bus service to get you back to your car.

    The Planekeepers Path commences from the sea-lock where vessels would leave the open water and enter the Lower Canal Basin to discharge their cargoes into Barges.  At Helebridge the barges were uploaded and transport continued inland my smaller, shallow tub-boats.  The Planekeepers Path follows the route the boatmen took as they tended their cargoes from Bude to the Thurlibeer Inclined Plane.  It then continues through beautiful countryside along footpaths and quiet lanes then heads back to Bude via the ancient town of Stratton.
  • This circular walk leaflet contains an illustrated map, full route and information about the many points of interest along the way.
  • This wonderful walk leads you through one of the most unspoilt, remote and beautiful areas in North Cornwall.  The ancient woodlands of the Millook Valley now belong to the Woodland Trust and are a haven for lichens and a range of wildlife, whilst the age-old hay meadows within the woods host a profusion of native flowers.  By contrast to the shaded valley are the breathtaking clifftop views above the prehistoric, stunted woods of the Dizzard.  Here the wind-pruned trees and shrubs are a true spectacle throughout the seasons.
  • This romantic picturesque walk takes you through riverside meadows, dappled woods and age-old farmsteads.  The route emerges onto the coast path above Strangles with its sweeping beach then continues past the natural arch known as Northern Door and the dramatic headland of Cambeak with its fascinating unique geology.
  • St Gennys Circular is a wonderful walk leading you to the core of the ancient parish of St Gennys, namely the small village of Churchtown.  Perched among a remarkable undulating landscape, high above the rugged coast and overlooking Bude Bay, the hamlet and its surroundings have changed little in the past centuries.  Magnificent coastal scenery is encountered along the walk with Tintagel visible to the south and to the north Bude, Hartland Point and Lundy Island on clear days.
