My first visit to Cornwall – first three days, stayed at Boscastle. Still haven’t looked through most of the images.
Boscastle was devastated in 2004, when the River Valency burst its banks in a flash flood, leaving many residents stranded in their buildings, washing away the bridge and tossing around cars as if they were toys. The area is now restored to its former beauty after a major rebuild and refurbishment effort. Forrabury Stitches are ancient cultivation strips which have been farmed this way since Medieval times. They are situated on the clifftops above Boscastle village. Along the same coast, Trebarwith Strand is a favourite place for families and surfers.
