A decade ago the picturesque Cornish village of Boscastle was almost destroyed by a devastating flash flood which swept through the valley. Gradually, with the help of donations and volunteers from around the world, the villagers were able to rebuild their homes, businesses and lives. Find out how Boscastle has been reborn from the floodwaters and discover what the National Trust is doing to minimise the chances of such a disaster ever happening again.
