@DEEDOODLE :  The Dawlish Warren variant, presumably

1½ weeks ago

Nice pics, but what's the coronavirus doing in nos. 6 & 8?

Waste of time and money. The thing is now irreparable and has become a blot on the landscape of Dawlish. The people living around it must despair. The rot set in when the council allowed the building of a modern estate of houses in the former grounds of a historic property and now there is no going back, however much 'Historic England' would like to.

No doubt this will add to the traffic problems at this end of the town.

Heard this rumour a few months back. No doubt it will be made into flats and add to the traffic congestion around the Church Street/Weech Road/Badlake Hill area.
