Scunthorpe based Leyland Octopus taking girders to Lynmouth in 1957. The usual road in via Blackmoor Gate was shut, after the Flood Disaster of 1952. The only way in was up Porlock Hill and down Countisbury - both 1 in 4 hills, along the A39. The girders were to repair the bridge at Barbrook. The scene here is set at Brandish Street, Allerford.
