Every town needs a waterfall

26 August 2021 | Grand Bruit
Richard Hudson
This is Grand Bruit, pronounced "grand brit", but from the French phrase for much noise.

The waterfall is right in the middle of the town, and while it isn't super loud, you can definitely hear it all the time.

Grand Bruit is, sadly, now an abandoned community on the south coast of Newfoundland. It was resettled in 2010, so most of the buildings are still in fairly good shape, though the church steeple (the church is on the hill, to the right of the waterfall) has collapsed, with the bell inside.

There are no roads, only footpaths. The ferry no longer stops here, and one can dock at the old ferry dock, which is still in good condition. At that ferry dock is a big sign celebrating the former community's winning of a Tidy Towns award.

Painted on the rocks of the waterfall, in big letters, it proudly says:
Welcome to Grand Bruit
