Memories of Bude

I remember the primary school and the little banks behind it which seemed huge to us then! We used to go mussel picking on the rocks and walk along the downs with buttercups and daisies, sadly now much reduced due to soil erosion.

Does anybody in the Bude , Marhamchurch area remember Daisy ( my mum ) who lived in Bude / Marhamchurch area, 1940 to 1947. Daisy worked at the Clairmont hotel in Bude, which I think now is a outdoor activity centre.

At the age of 13 we lived in Lloyds Bank, my mum and dad where the caretakers there. Bude Strand was our play area in 1955, many a new pair of shoes was practised walking to and fro on that pavement. My dad also worked for the County Council and repaved it in later years, no one way system then, cars travelled both ways. Fond Memories.

My gt gt grand mother, Mary Cornish was born in Coombe Valley c 1814 She was married to Henry Harris in the parish church of St Morwenna & John the Baptist on 26th December 1839 The presiding incumbent was Robert Stephen Hawker.
