We are very happy to announce the publication of the book, Dawlish Through the Ages by David Force.

We have been waiting for this book for a long time and are so glad it is now out to purchase.

The book also includes history on Dawlish Warren, Starcross, The Exe Estuary and Haldon Hills.

With over 200 pages charting the story of the town from the time of the Saxons to the present day.

‘I wrote a brief history about 10 years ago as I was asked to give a talk on the town’s history. My mum suggested I write a book! It’s been a long time but I kept shelving it due to lack of time! I’m really pleased to get it finished though mum never got to read it.’

Pick up from Force and Sons in Queen Street, the Dawlish Gazette or Presents. It will be available from Dawlish Museum when it opens in April.

Also available on Ebay if you live away from the area. Only £9.95. All profits to Dawlish Museum.
