Bed of former Bude Canal near Holsworthy, 1976
This disused canal site is a mile north of the centre of Holsworthy, off the A388, and several hundred yards along a minor road to the left (west) . Here the canal was just over a mile from Blagdonmoor Wharf, the Holsworthy branch's final terminus. The canal was used to transport sea sand from the coast to improve the local soil.
