Do you know this place?

Post by marc27uk » Wed Oct 16, 2013 10:33 am

Hi

I was wondering if anyone here could help me identify the location in the attached photograph? While going through my late father's photographs (of which there were many because he was a keen amateur photographer) I came across a box marked Cornwall 1958. Attached is the picture, i've blanked out my Dad as I don't think he would like to be on the net.

Thanks for any help you can give.

This is Bude looking across the back of Bude castle across the river to the Church on the opposite side, not changed too much from 1958! Good to see it was sunny then too :)

Hi, Thank you so much! That is amazing I really can't believe how similar it looks today. Well I now know where our family holiday will be next year - Bude and I will be recreating the same picture. There is also a picture of steep path with a pier in the background, is there anywhere like this close to Bude?

Once again thank you for you help, it made my day.

Marc

There are no piers in Cornwall like this, Looking at it the light seems to be behind which suggests its a south coast pier, don't think it's devonian which suggests maybe Dorset, Hampshire or Sussex.

Actually strike that - looking at your Dad's shirt the light source is coming from his top right which means theoretically it could be east coast.
