Bude The Postcard Collection

Availability: In stock

Author: Dawn G. Robinson

The north Cornwall seaside resort town of Bude has undergone quite a transformation since its humble beginnings as Stratton’s unremarkable neighbour. As one local candidly put it, ‘Stratton was a market town when Bude was just a furzy down.’ Initially known for its beach sand properties, which worked wonders on soil and proved favourable with many Cornish farmers, Bude expanded rapidly following the construction of the sea canal in the early nineteenth century. The Victorians sought it out as the ideal holiday resort.

Bude – known in the Cornish tongue as Porthbud – has proven a hit with holidaymakers as an idyllic seaside destination. Whether surfing at Widemouth Bay, exploring cliffs and hidden beach coves, or simply enjoying a spot of fishing, the charming resort has emerged as a tourist hotspot. Author Dawn G. Robinson has compiled a captivating collection of postcards that capture the beauty and charm of this seaside spot.
