Teignbridge District Council is encouraging residents to rummage through their attics for old photographs or documents that could reveal the fascinating history of Dawlish Warren for a special event at the visitor’s centre on Sunday, May 8.
The Sands of Time event will take place from 10am to 12.30pm and include a tour of the site, as well as a slideshow of old photographs and the opportunity for people to share their memories of the area.
Phil Chambers, Teignbridge District Council’s senior countryside ranger told the Devon Week: “Dawlish Warren has changed dramatically over time and this event is a great opportunity for people to discover the area’s rich history.
“Many people have lived here for generations, or visited the area each year, so will have witnessed and documented the changes in photographs, postcards and letters.
“I hope everyone comes along and share those memories and helps create a picture of how Dawlish Warren has developed.”
Tickets, which must be booked in advanced, are priced at £3.50 for adults, while accompanied children go free. Contact the Dawlish Warren Visitors Centre on 01626 863980 for more information.
