BOSCASTLE

Boscastle harbour and the village of Boscastle are well worth a visit. It consists of a small well defended harbour that is of ancient construction (apparently being rebuilt in 1584) that leads inland to the Valency valley. Along the valley there are many houses and gift shops has well as a fine bakery and pottery. The village boasts many fine places to eat drink and make merry. If you walk down the harbour on the quayside and follow the footpath up and around to the left you will eventually come to the Lookout. It is well worth the effort (on a clear day) because the location of this vantage point gives unrivalled views of some of the most rugged coastline in England.

BOTTREAUX CASTLE & MINSTER CHURCH

 At the top of the village, in the Camelford direction, Bottreaux Castle can be found.  All that remains is abench atop the hill with views down a wooded valley. At the top of this valley lies Minster church ( St Merthiana). Minster is beautifully situated in a wooded coombe that is almost encircled by a small lane and completely surrounded by trees. There is a lovely woodland walk that wends down towards Boscastle from here.

BOSCASTLE HARBOUR

Boscastle Harbour is almost invisible from the sea, and affords the sailors a sheltered refuge for them and there craft, so long has they are able to negotiate the "S" shaped entrance that cuts through the headland to give way to a natural harbour. You can also see Meachard, a small islet adjacent to the harbour entrance.

AROUND BOSCASTLE

There are several places to explore whilst visiting Boscastle. Boscastle is essentially comprised of the upper and lower village sections. The top of Boscastle affords superb views and cliff walks. There is a petrol staion here and Doctors Surgery as well as the quaint Napolean Inn. The public toilet is now a private dwelling. The bottom of Boscastle is where you will find the Witchcraft Museum and the main shopping area with cafes, restaurants, pubs and giftshops as well as public toilets. The walk from the back of the car park up Valency valley is a treat.

BOSCASTLE LOOKOUT

There are a couple of ways to reach this vantage point with its superb clear views both up and down this magnificent coastline. Either via the harbour, which involves a fairly easy but steep walk up from the quayside of the harbour or via Forrabury Church which lies at the top of the village and is not  accessible with a vehicle nor is there any parking nearby. A nice walk is to park in Boscastle car park and then walk down through the lower village, carry on down towards the harbour and make for the lefthand walkway. This will take you up to the lookout. You can then walk back towards Forrabury Church and explore as much or as little of the upper part of the village before following the old road back down to the village.

BOSCASTLE BLOWHOLE

The Boscastle Blowhole sends a resounding boom across the harbour when the conditions and tide are in sync. To locate the blowhole, not to be confused with the village newsletter of the same name, you have to walk down the correct footpath. One path follows the pipline down by the youth hostel and takes you to the outer mole. The other takes you to the inner harbour wherein the fishing boats are moored.

FORRABURY CHURCH

Forrabury church (St Symphorian) on the other hand, stands proud to the elements out on the headland. The Rev R. S. Hawker wrote a marvellous little ditty on "The Bells of Forrabury." The tower is minus a peal, and the poem, founded on local legend, tells of how a ship carrying some bells for this church, was wrecked. They were almost in port and the pilot uttered a pious "Thank God" for a safe voyage. The Captain immediately cried "Thank God on Land; but at sea thank the Captain and the good vessel." A vengeful storm duly arose and ship, captain, crew and the bells were lost to the sea. The pilot however did miraculously survive. "Still when the storm of Bottreaux's  waves, is wakening in the weedy caves, Those bells that sullen surges hide, peal their deep notes beneath the tide."
