Boscastle had a major disaster on the 16th August 2004, when flood water came down the hill and nearly washed all of the village away. Phil had visited there in May 2004 while he was down there at the Mini World Riviera Run. Phil wanted to see Boscastle due to his Mom and Dad had spent there honeymoon there.
Here's a couple of photos that were taken.
Then the disaster happened.
The next few photos tie in with the ones above.
These are taken from the book by David Rowe of the story of the disaster.
2005 Phil went back to visit.
Phil parked Ahh Kid roughly where he parked a year ago.
2008 Phil and I went to see. I was really happy to see it looking wonderful, Work was still going on. They had built a new bridge down towards the harbour. I did have a few funny looks from the foreigners that were there or then again they might have been looking at Phil, he's strange.
Here's a few pics of what its looking like today.
