Almost 10 years ago to the day Boscastle suffered a catastrophic flood which devastated the village and harbour. Since then the houses and village have been restored and new flood defences built. If you walk down to actual harbour today, you wouldn’t realise that anything had ever happened. I remember watching the news channels as the disaster unfolded with people being winched off the roofs of their houses by the rescue helicopters.
