'Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that
bears things - with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.'
Corazon Aquino (former Filipino President)

Latest update - (desktop wallpaper & jigsaws)
Saturday 20th August 2016

We visited the Devonshire village of Lynmouth on 15th August 2016, the 64th anniversary of the day when severe storms swept 90 million tonnes of water down the narrow valley in the space of 24 hours. Overnight, more than 100 buildings were destroyed, along with 28 of the 31 bridges. 38 cars were washed out to sea and 34 people died, with a further 420 made homeless. A Flood Memorial Hall was built on the site of the old lifeboat station (one of the buildings destroyed in the flood). The Hall houses an exhibition of archived material from the storm that wreaked such havoc in this small community.
