Living on the Cornish Border

I grew up visiting the little known and idyllic town of Bude just over the Cornish border. So given the opportunity to go back and profile the town, I jumped at the opportunity.

Created for a university project, but now featured on the celebrated hyper-local news website ‘Bude and Beyond’ living on the Cornish border explores why the town, barely metres over the border is so proud of its Cornish heritage and why it is one of few thriving seaside towns:

Context:

Designed to be part of a magazine show discussing coastal towns following the new that many Seaside towns needed funds for renovation. Also part of the programme would be debates and discussions by business owners, residents and politicians on what and why seaside towns need help.

Cue:

Forget the hype over the Scottish and British border, what about the one between England and Cornwall?

Following the Government’s recent recognition of Cornish culture as a minority national identity that should be protected, the region’s pride has had a significant boost. So what is it like living just 10 minutes over the border?

Today we’ve been talking about struggling seaside towns, but Bude, the first town in the county of Cornwall is thriving. Despite being the first town once you leave Devon and is very proud of its Cornish heritage. Situated on the west coast the town is quite remote to the rest of the county and requires a drive that takes you to few other locations.

So why is it worth travelling that extra awkward 30 minutes, down the A39, to visit the out-of-the-way sea-side town and what makes it so inherently Cornish? We begin on Crooklets Beach in Bude, with resident and Bude and Beyond writer Dawn Robinson.
