Captains Lodge & Tregonwell Teas ridge dragons

This amazing collection of photos is for ridge dragon finials that we supplied that sit proudly on the Captains Lodge and Tregonwell Teas houses in Lynton and Lynmouth which are pretty picture postcard villages in Devon. The solid stone built houses were commissioned for a Victorian sea captain in the heyday of the British Empire and feature slate roofs with clay ridge tiles. Today they serve as a B&B and teahouse and are popular with tourists and locals. The area is in the heart of Exmoor National Park and has stunning scenery and is a great setting for the dragons which create a beautiful and eye catching feature

This area is popular for walking and when walkers enter the village via Tors Road which winds down to the pretty village of Lynmouth it offers a great view of the dragons. The buildings are sited close to the East Lyn river which is at times a fast flowing river that flows into the Bristol Channel. There is a great picture showing one of the dragons from the back view overlooking the fast flowing river where the water is cascading through the village!. The dragons themselves are installed on a dormer window and a gable end on each building which look over the street and river

The dragon finials can be viewed from the street level or from across the East Lyn river and I am sure they have been a popular and eye catching feature for locals and tourists because they add a fantastic feature and interest to the rooftops
