  Nature of Claimant’s Interest   Particulars of Claim Amount of Damages Claimed  
    The Schedule to Particulars referred to in the annexed Claim of John Broomhead        
    The Mill, Public House, and Premises of the Claimant, adjoin the River Loxley, The Inundation washed away the whole of the Land forming the Private Roadway to the Premises from the Highway and partially undermined the Dwelling House causing the Kitchen foundations to give way and but for prompt action the greater part of the Public House would have fallen as the course of the River was by the Flood diverted so as to run close to the foundations of the Claimant's Property. A Cart Shed adjoining the Mill was wholly carried away the fences and road also carried away and the Premises otherwise injured. The Interior of the Public House was deluged and for some time rendered totally untenantable. The Mill also sustained some damage in the interior which the Tenant is liable to make good and for which he will prepare a claim against the Water Works Company.
The Claimant has made good the whole of the damage (except the rebuilding of the Cart Shed & Kitchen and except such damages as the Tenant is liable to repair) and the following is a copy of the Builder's Bill therefor which the Claimant has paid or become liable to pay
       
    To Joseph Rodley, for Work done in repairing the damage done by the Flood at Rowell Bridge Inn, Mill, Outbuildings, and River Wall
