Cable & Wireless, Bude

With the rise of undersea cables in Bude, Cable and Wireless built this facility to house inter-connection equipment and repeater equipment for cables running from Land’s Ends towards London. The frontage design matches other Cable & Wireless built repeater stations.

It is thought that this could be the Cable Landing Station for Global Crossing’s Pan European Crossing (UK-Ireland) North cable which lands at Crooklets Beach, a few miles north. This is due to the building’s size, number of chambers present and lack of planning details.
