Description

Learn about the amazing journey of the Overland Launch made on the 12th January 1899 to rescue the stricken ship, Forrest Hall, near Porlock and accompany her to Barry, before returning home - an incredible forty-one hour ordeal for the lifeboatmen of Lynmouth!

Louisa: An Amazing Adventure is based on the real-life heroics that night, when the crew and villagers successfully towed the 34-foot Louisa lifeboat 13 miles by hand from Lynmouth to Porlock to go to the aid the distressed vessel.

Directed and animated by Lynton based Ken Blakey and is the culmination of 12 years of work by producers Dave and Maz Reynolds, the movie by Great British Entertainment Ltd will be screened at Lynton Cinema from Friday, 11th January until Monday 14th January, to mark the anniversary.
