No "bad guys" for Lionel and Cynthia but some "very nice people" in the National Trust Centre in Boscastle without whom they would not have found this cottage. On the B3263 at Bossiney by the radio mast. So thanks to all concerned. (RL)

Perhaps he's down here.

Uh-oh, yes there he is, and not well.

Trebarwith Strand. Visiting Cornwall missed this one in an otherwise fine list. SJ

Farrar now on the scene to investigate.

And into the caves.
