Bude-Stratton Town Council has appointed the contractor for the Compass Point Project, and work to relocate the Storm Tower is scheduled to start on April 24.

The work will be undertaken by Sally Strachey Historic Conservation, based near Wincanton in Somerset.

A council spokesperson added: "In addition to the physical re-siting of the Storm Tower, the project includes an exciting activity and educational programme for the community and there will be much more to follow on this over the coming months."
