Welcome to Bude Canal Trust
The Bude Canal comprised a mini-network of waterways on the Devon/Cornwall border. It is of considerable historic interest, featuring some of the most unusual and ingenious engineering of the canal-building era. The Aqueduct branch of the system, which is the length in the ownership of the Bude Canal Trust, was the original feeder arm for the whole system, although it was later also used as part of the general canal network.
The Bude Canal Trust is a charity whose aims are to retain the historic interest while managing what has become an important wildlife area. The 5-mile footpath along the old towpath gives an opportunity for all to enjoy this truly wonderful facility.
