Lynmouth Harbour

Lynmouth Harbour - Exmoor
One of the highest tides (10.2mtrs) for years approaches Lynmouth Beach/harbour, Devon whilst the sky brightens with a beautiful sunrise. The tower located at end of the small harbour is called Rhenish Tower and was built by General Rawdon to store salt water for indoor baths. It was later fitted with an electric light for use as a beacon. The original tower was built in c.1860. It was rebuilt as an exact replica after 1952 flood damage. Lynmouth was described by Thomas Gainsborough, who honeymooned there with his bride Margaret Burr, as "the most delightful place for a landscape painter this country can boast".
