Bottomboat Road February 9th 1946. This photo shows the extent of the floods that year. The Ferry Boat Inn is to the centre of the photo, and to the left are bungalows. Today this area of Bottomboat is completely unrecognisable to the scene in this photo. The bungalow which today stands at the bottom of the lane would be situated back left in this photo.

Musketts Farm Bottomboat 1975. This photo shows the farm in its original state before it was converted in the 1980s (and later demolished). On the farm there were two wells. If you look closely at the front left of the farmhouse you can see a small conifer tree, today this tree is all that remains of the farm and it is over 50ft tall, a good reference if you are wondering where the building was situated
