Boscastle, Cornwall

Boscastle harbour and village

This village was virtually washed into the sea in the summer of 2004, when a big flood raged through it. Twelve months on and the people of Boscastle have done an amazing job of rebuilding their village. Many of the old and historic houses are still uninhabitable, but the shops have been rebuilt and the tourists have returned. As you can see the natural harbour leading from the sea provides a very dramatic backdrop to the village.
