Looking down the Bude Canal inclined plane at Hobbacott Down
This photograph was taken in 1976 at the summit of the inclined plane looking down the slope. I believe that the canal Tub boats were hauled up the plane using counterbalanced containers of water sunk into vertical shafts at the plane's summit.
