Boscastle

Boscastle is a picturesque village in a narrow steep sided valley where the rivers Valency and Jordan meet on the North Coast of Cornwall.It unfortunately became the centre of attention after the terrible flood of 2004.

Boscastle has a historic harbour, interesting church and a lot of the cottages are very old.

There is also a Museum of Witchcraft.

The name Boscastle derives from the Botreaux Castle which once overlooked the area, but has now gone.

The village also has a connection with Thomas Hardy who met his wife there and much of his book A Pair of Blue Eyes is based in the area.
