The Bude Canal was built in 1823 to carry beach sand from Bude, 20 miles inland to Launceston for use as fertiliser and to export local produce, bringing development to the coastal town. It is now used for pleasure-boating and fishing.

The canal runs from the Sea Lock at Bude for one and a quarter miles, to Rodd's Bridge Lock, which is now closed. Promoted by Acts of 1774 and 1819, it was opened (excepting for the Druxton Branch which opened in 1825) in 1823 and closed by an Act of 1891.

[[Flooding]] of August 16th, 2004

In the worst [[flooding]] in the area for fifty years, parts of Bude were reported to be submerged in up to six feet of water as a normal month's rainfall fell in only two hours. Nearby Boscastle was devastated as up to three feet of water rushed through the coombe at up to 40 miles per hour and the Bude and Port Isaac lifeboats were called out to assist in the recue which involved seven helicopters. The village of Tintagel, legendary birthplace of King Arthur, and Camelford were also inundated by torrential rain.

The floods hit Boscastle almost exactly 52 years to the day after floods swept through Lynmouth, in Devon, killing 12 people.
