Welcome to the Dawlish Local History Group
website. The Group was formed in September 1993 to encourage
preservation of the history of the town, to collect materials
and to make these available for researchers. With the help of
its members, the Group has published some 30 booklets on a
variety of subjects. Dawlish Museum is currently building a
digital archive of its old photographs and other images of
Dawlish and the Group is helping with the dating of these.
Meetings are held bi-monthly at the Manor House, with visiting
speakers who talk on many subjects, newsletters keep the members
informed of news and activities. In the summer months we have
visits to local places of historical interest.
Help is given to anyone making enquiries into local and family
history. New members are always welcome and for information
please contact our Secretary (see contacts)
