The Delabole Hole

On the drive back to the B and B, Verity wanted to stop off and see the Delabole hole. At one time it was the deepest man made hole I think, in Europe, maybe the world, but it has since been superseded, still its fairly impressive for a slate quarry. Delabole itself has nothing to recommend it.

I then wanted to go to Trebarwith Strand, as I hadn’t been there for many a year. I almost wished we hadn’t at one point as the road was extremely narrow, long and horrendously precipitous, I could not have backed up at all if we had met anything! The tide was in, and we got the full force of the wind in our faces, but it was worth it for the view of the sea and island ( there isn’t much else ).

We made our way home via Tintagel but didn’t stop as it looked very touristy. That evening we ate at the Napoleon Pub in Boscastle village. Lovely open fires, good atmosphere and food.

Afterwards, we had a quick walk around the village, down more steep hills, and decided that the village was much prettier than the harbour.
