Under The Surface – Somerset Floods 2014

In 2014, we became synonomous with the 2014 flooding that devastated the Somerset  levels and almost our family business.  Our factory is located, at what was the epicentre in Burrowbridge.

Sixty square miles of Somerset were submerged. These were terribly tough times; for our neighbours – whose homes were decimated, farmers – homes and livelihoods were destroyed, for our business and wonderful employees – our factory was submerged for 9 months, under 12 feet of water.

Lessons were learnt however, firm friendships formed, community spirit soared and the beautiful habitat of the Somerset Levels and its unique residents and wildlife have returned.

The video below documents the flooding through the lens of professional photographer Matilda Temperley, sister of fashion designer Alice Temperley  who captured the devastation in an ironically beautiful way. At the beginning of 2014 her 99 year old grandfather’s house and her father’s barns and farmland were flooded. In an attempt to increase the press attention to this man-made disaster, Matilda began documenting the floods and the effects on the community. Matilda’s images and account of the floods has been used in the UK by amongst others the BBC, The Times, The Telegraph, The Observer, The Guardian, Yahoo, The Daily Mail and The NFU as well as various international publications.
