Re: Help save the middle class holiday maker!

Your in-depth knowledge of Boscastle is impressive, as is your grasp of irony.

For a start, it's never been a fishing port: it grew from the slate business.

Perhaps more to the point, the flooding was news because

a. all sorts of places are vulnerable to flooding, as later events were to prove


b. people from the other side of the Tamar consider Boscastle very beautiful, and are concerned for the safety of the place.

One can only assume you're the same 'Lucy Ellis' who keeps getting their posts deleted from Cornwall24 ...
