The harbour itself is very old – it was rebuilt in 1584 – and was once a bu= sy trading port exporting Cornish Slate and importing a variety of goods inclu= ding Welsh Coal. The village boasts two churches; <span class=3DGramE>The</span>= <st1:place w:st=3D"on"><st1:PlaceType w:st=3D"on">church</st1:PlaceType> of <st1:Place= Name w:st=3D"on">St. Juliot</st1:PlaceName></st1:place> or Minster nestles in s= leepy woodland at the top of the valley and was worked on by the novelist Thomas Hardy when he was still a practicing architect. In contrast, the clifftop church at Forrabury stands on a headland south of the village defying the elements. The village hit the news headlines when it was struck by a flash-flood in August 2004 during which entire buildings were swept away and more than fifty vehicles had to be recovered from the silt and mud that fil= led the inner harbour. Cliff walkers will be rewarded with spectacular views in both directions.<span style=3D'mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span><o:p></o:p><= /span></p> <p class=3DMsoNormal style=3D'mso-pagination:none'><span lang=3DEN-GB><o:p>=  </o:p></span></p> <p class=3DMsoNormal><span lang=3DEN-GB><o:p> </o:p></span></p> </div> </body> </html>
