Lower Bridge at Boscastle

The bridge was severely damaged and, although temporarily repaired, was demolished in 2008 and replaced by a wider more modern structure positioned some 3metres downstream.

The building on the left is Boscastle YHA. Hidden from view by the YHA building was SX0991 : The Pixie Shop, Boscastle, which was completely destroyed by the same flood event.
