Compass Point Storm Tower Project Nears Completion

Compass Point Storm Tower Project Nears Completion

In a stirring testament to resilience and community commitment, the Compass Point Storm Tower Project is rapidly approaching its completion, ushering in a new chapter for this iconic landmark in Bude.

The recent weeks have been marked by significant milestones, bringing the tower closer to its former glory. The meticulous reinstatement of compass directional stones, the placement of final stones, and the precise pouring and setting of the ring beam have laid the groundwork for the impending roof structure.

The most recent development, however, brings a sense of familiarity to the project as the steel roof frame was seamlessly winched into position. This crucial step not only signifies progress but offers a visual preview of the tower’s restored silhouette.

While the project is not yet fully complete, these advancements underscore the dedication and meticulous planning invested by Bude-Stratton Town Council and the community at large. The tower stands as a symbol of our shared history, and its restoration embodies our commitment to preserving the rich tapestry of Bude.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to our generous supporters who have played a pivotal role in making this restoration possible. We extend our gratitude to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, contributors to our Crowdfunder campaign, and Cornwall Council for their invaluable funding. Recognition is also extended to Sally Strachey Historic Conservation, our specialist contractors, for their contribution to the Compass Point Storm Tower project.

As we enter the final stages, anticipation builds for the grand unveiling of the Compass Point Storm Tower in its new home. Bude-Stratton Town Council is grateful for the unwavering support from the community throughout this transformative journey.
