Taking this picture in the summer of 1991 it was hard to visualize the events of the summer of 1952; how such a peaceful scene could turn into disaster.

“Thirty-four people lost their lives in the Lynmouth flood disaster in August 1952. More than half a century later and questions are still being asked about the tragedy…”
