Boscastle and Tintagel

The aftermath.

Two years ago, we were suffering a holiday in the Lake District. We were camping, and for two weeks, it rained, and it rained heavily. But while we were complaining about being stuck in a tent, a small village fought against a massive flood. Filled with tourists and homes, hit by a flood pulse upto 4 metres high, submerged under a river, three buildings were washed away - one while there were people inside. And yet incredibly, nobody died.

That little village was Boscastle, in the north of Cornwall, and two years on, they are still trying to rebuild. Being in the area, we could not pass up the chance to see it.
