View above Watersmeet of two valleys

Caption - Above Watersmeet the junction of the two valleys is clearly seen. It was here in August 1952 after extensive rain, that the two swollen rivers joined and caused extensive damage and loss of life further downstream in Lynmouth. The steep sided valleys meant there was nowhere for the excess water to escape and added to the scale of the tragedy.

Exmoor

Exmoor National Park lies in West Somerset and North Devon including a dramatic section of coast. Wild moorland dominates the high ground with Dunkery Beacon the highest point within the National Park. Wooded valleys or combes cut deep into this upland and provide another typical feature of the landscape. The coast includes some of the highest cliffs in the UK with easy access provided by the South West Coast National Trail. More Information
