Lynmouth Flood - a Memory of Lynmouth.

My wife and I were staying in Middleham Cottages that night and escaped to the schoolhouse with other survivers. We escaped the village the next day, after a terrifying night, through the Lynmouth Hotel to the bridge by ladder across the water. I have painted the original Middleham Cottages from an old photo as it was before the disaster.
