Research and Publications

The group undertakes research on the history of Dawlish and district, both as a result of enquiries received, and on subjects which interest individual members. To help with this research we maintain an archive of historical information collected by members over the past 20+ years, and we have close contacts with Dawlish Museum.

As a result of this research the Group has published over 30 booklets on a wide range of Dawlish subjects, and more are planned. They cover houses, notable residents, industry, shops, education, tourism, Dawlish Warren, the railway, and even Dawlish’s famous black swans.
