A very colourful review and report

I had read about the sand railway before and the remains that were uncovered a few years back but didn't realise that there was a substantial length embedded in the canal embankment.
Although not the original rails they date back to 1924 and were last used in the 40's. Interestingly the sleepers are steel and considering the corrosive atmosphere they have stood up well.
Bude was very busy on the day we visited and I could only think that Beeching did very little to promote North Cornwall which until recently had suffered for many years in the aftermath of such short sighted decisions.
Very best wishes Andrew and Diane
