Speedy Piran's little adventure with the Bude Light


Hi, I'm Speedy Piran and I need your help! The Captain has brought me to Bude to deliver a crate to the castle but which way should I go?

During this interactive story, you will get a chance to ‘ride and decide’ by choosing what happens, and clicking the hyperlinks that take you to different parts of my book.

You can read my story again and again to explore all our options. Try to keep the crate safe as we journey to the castle, and discover more about Goldsworthy Gurney, a local inventor from Bude.

Yours, Speedy Piran
