The smoke in the background is coming from a heath fire at Clump Hill.

11 August 1976      [1/N/19]

There was a severe drought during 1976 and the dry ground caused this pine tree to fall over at "White Lodge".

The Sunday evening bus had just been past and I believe the vibration triggered the fall.

26 August 1976      [1/R/1]

Taken in 1990, this picture shows where another pine tree fell over at "White Lodge" bringing down the power lines.

The cause this time was a storm the previous night which caused widespread damage.

"White Lodge" was demolished in 2000.
