The second floor of the Welly (The Wellington Hotel) is where the water reached during the 2004 flood. There were many references on buildings lining the walk down to the sea reminding us of that awful time. It had been far too many years to count since I had last seen Boscastle but I feel I know this little fishing village well. As a geographer the flood was used frequently as a case study after the local area experienced more than its fair share of rain.
However its great to see a thriving community welcoming visitors in the winter and here are a few of my favourite photos. I have to mention the excellent crab sandwiches at The Welly! I will be back for sure!
