Totally agree with Dave. I'm in Leeds, so popping down isn't an option. I followed the diary of events after the flood with great interest, and the 'blog' is brilliant.
Please keep it up so that those of us who can't visit as often as we'd like, can find out what's going on.
Thanks for all the time you must have taken to keep a diary, when things must have been incredibly difficult.

Definitely!

I am an Australian Witch and Occultist, and I have visited the Museum on my last trip to the UK. The pagan community here was devastated when we heard about the flood, and I checked your site every day to see what had been salvaged and what had sadly been lost.

Please, keep it up!

Great source of information. High time though that Boscastle had a web cam - if only to see if there are any new ducklings this tear.

Please do keep the blog going, it is lovely to be able to keep up with happenings at the museum and also in Boscastle itself. Your flood diary was excellent and I avidly checked it for updates! We were devastated to see what happened last year. We will be visiting the village as we do each year in July and look forward to visting the museum too.

The diary is fantastic. Thank you for keeping all these important things safe. Great to hear some of the locals that had never been before came for a look round. I visited 2 years ago, and could have spent hours and hours longer looking round, so much to take in. Wish I lived closer - I'm in Kent. A web cam would be brilliant, or even just some video footage, like a virtual tour. Love your chanting 1 and 2 CD's. Is there a number 3?

Our family visited Boscastle on Bank Holiday Monday and we had a wonderful time. It was sad to see foundations where once homes and buildings had been, but WOW! I would not have believed it had I not seen it! The progress that you wonderful Boscastle people have made has been just, well, Majickal! And although as the lovely chap in the sweet shop said "When we saw it...it went beyond pain", the sheer and utter courage and optimism and hard work is remarkable.
The Museum is also a wonderful site... don't you worry about the machines... most people understand that they are nessessary and they do not detract from the wonderful experience of the museum itself.
By the way... we hope to be coming for another visit tomorrow... can't keep away now!
Blessed be all, and keep up the good work:)

I have visited the museum many,many times since the early 70s and i have always felt very safe and at home there.The museum recalls very fond childhood memories of mine.Both of my children have visited (2 and 8 yrs)and i have also visited with loved ones now sadly no longer with us.I have many photos of several generations of my family taken outside the museum.The first thought that came into my head when the flood unfolded was of the Witches Museum (and the liver and onion in the Wellington !)Somehow you instinctively knew that despite all the horror that transpired that fateful day the museum would survive whatever was thrown at it.My heartfelt thoughts are with you and you are to be commended and deeply admired for the work you have obviously put in ,not just for the influx of visitors for this year but for many years to come and many years that have already passed .Thankyou.

My partner and I came down to see you on the day the museum reopened following the flood. I had been there before but my partner was new to the whole withcraft thing. I didn't quite know what his reaction would be. He was incredibly interested and thought the museum was wonderful. I was very impressed too by the changes. I think the diary is a brilliant idea and will definitely take the opportunity to access it regularly to see what is going on down there. I live in Wales so it isn't too far to travel to Boscastle but I get there only rarely these days. Keep up the excellent work. Bright blessings.

It would be a sad day indeed if you decided to stop the journal entries. They are fascinating to read, as well as inspiring me to keep saving to make the trip over. I live in Canada, so it's not too easy to get over there frequently. I love seeing pictures of the museum, and of Graham in his uniform. He just have been boiling in it though. It shocked the witchcraft community here in Canada as well as in the US. I'm very sorry to hear that you lost some items, but thankfully you were able to salvage some. No one minds the gadgets - it's all part of museum life. Hope to see you next year!

I'm in Brighton. I visited the museum in June and had a magical time. it's great to keep up with your news until I return. Will you be putting your merchandise on the website? t-shirts etc? I didn't have time to look when I was there.
