I didn't even notice the water under my bed till my sister started to scream. I had never experienced anything like it in my life, I thought me and my family were going to die luckily we survied

I went there just a year before this happened and i can remember standing on the footbridge that is no longer there :( its dreadful.

Keep living boscastle villiagers and it will all come together

You need a better website for writing essays on the Boscastle floods. i have been searching for ages on the internet and there is none. i need to know where Boscastle is, but there isn't even a map. argh. however i have read a lot about the devasation and it's quite touching! i hope everyone who experienced the floods is doing well. sorry for being arrogant

i am very said for all the homes which where damange and i hope they are fixed and hope 2 learn more about boscastle

I was there in Boscatle a week before the disaster. I was shocked to see the devestation it caused and felt for the people there. I did try and return back in June this year but the whole area was very busy but could see the rejuvenation that was being done and looked very good. Look forward to making a full visit in due course.

my house was toatally submergered in the carlile floods we were all asleep and were woken when the water moved our beds we had to go into the loft and i was scared because my wife and two daughters looked to be in a bad way but we all made it through we know what yu are going through

I visited Boscastle a few weeks ago and it is great to see how all the buisinesses and shops are up and running again. I also thought that the museum of witchcraft was really good, especially where it showed you how high the water levels were. Keep up the good work!
