A circular and easy walk following the Bude Canal in Cornwall. The walk leaves Bude to head south along the canal towpath before returning along the land alongside the River Neet. The route passes though both the Bude Marshes Local Nature Reserve (with extensive reed beds) and Petherick's Mill Environmental Area (with many ditches and dykes), making it particularly popular with bird watchers. The walk is almost entirely flat and follows well made tarmac paths. There are no stiles and just one gate plus a couple of crossings over the A39 which can be quite busy with traffic. Public toilets are available at the car park at the start of the walk. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.
