Welcome to Boscastle
Boscastle, village lies within the parish of Forrabury and Minster on the North Cornish Coast 14 miles south from Bude and 5 miles from Tintagel, a conservation area amongst some of the most beautiful countryside within the British Isles, and is one of the few remaining unspoilt harbour villages in Cornwall. Designated an Area of Outstanding beauty, the National Trust own and care for the beautiful medieval harbour and surrounding coastline.
An excellent base for touring the area, all of Cornwall or North Devon,
including moorlands, sheltered wooden valleys and coastal footpaths offering
magnificent views, are all on our doorstep.
The small harbour now hosts a number of little fishing boats but was once a hive of activity with trade taking place between Wales, Bristol and the south of England. Here too a lovely valley heads inland, a path follows a fast flowing burbling stream which leads to several hidden churches allowing you to discover the little known connection between North Cornwall and Thomas Hardy.
informed me yesterday evening that he had forgotten that there is a Baptism at Tintagel during the main service on 17th July (ie my last service).
I am therefore going to move the venue of my final service in the Group as I feel that it is inappropriate to take away from the Baptism family any of the focus for such a special event. The family also do not know who I am, and would, (I think) be uncomfortable with my leave taking.
We will therefore hold my final service at 11am, 17th July, at Otterham & St Juliot Hall. Please, please, please do let as many people know as possible as the service is advertised as being at Tintagel.
We also said that there would be tea/coffee and home made cakes after the service - would it be possible for some of you to bring your delectable home made goodies to that service???? Pretty please.
Many thanks Robert
