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.
Walking leaflet contains an illustrated map, full route and information about the many points of interest along the way.
