Stayed in a guest house in Lynton for our summer holiday but on the last friday night there was a great storm and the bridge nearby and houses adjoining it all partly collapsed: perhaps one of my first real memories, seeing bedding hanging out of the side of a house . We must have met up with Auntie Pett & Uncle Billy one rainy day. We were going to return via the Cheddar Gorge, but the road was barred

report

Coal was delivered straight from the front of the house down into the cellar. I was made to count the bags going in - Mum worried that she might be diddled
