A short film.
Dartmoor is flooded.
James Baudouy and Hamish Holman document this flooding with car mounted cameras. They get home at 20:00 that evening to find the family home (situated below Haytor) flooded.
Battling the floods for 4 hours, no progress is made to stop the water seeping up and flowing into the house. Local farmer Steve Palmer is called up for help. Steve and the team attempt to divert the flood to save the house from further damage.
This was achieved by tractor power, a chainsaw, lots of digging and resulted in a new waterfall being created.
The front lawn 100m long with a 4ft high wall filled up like a pond. This volume of water has never been experienced here before.
