About Dawlish

Dawlish is an English seaside resort town and civil parish in Teignbridge on the south coast of Devon, 12 mi from the county town of Exeter and the larger resort of Torquay. Its population of 12,345 in 2001 rose to about 16,000 by 2018, and was expected to grow strongly in coming years, as several large housing estates were under construction, mainly in the north and east of the town. It had grown in the 18th century from a small fishing port into a well-known seaside resort, as had its near neighbour, Teignmouth, in the 19th century.
