Harbour Master Notice

Please see below the Public Notice issued by Bude Harbour Master.


Following the winter storms, the far end of the Breakwater between Tommy’s Pit and Barrel Rock has sustained severe damage. Subsequently, Tommy’s Pit has developed a leak, resulting in the water level being significantly reduced.

Harbour users are advised not to walk/stand in this area or jump into Tommy’s Pit from height.

Cornwall Council Maritime section are aware of this issue and funding has now been secured, with contractors due to start repairs early August, working between the tides.

Members of the public are advised to stay clear of the area until repairs are completed.
