Dawlish

4.1
Dawlish is a town and civil parish in Teignbridge on the south coast of Devon in England, 12mi from the county town of Exeter. It has a population of 12,819, decreasing to 11,312 at the 2011 census. During the 18th century, it grew from a small fishing port to become a well-known seaside resort. Dawlish has two electoral wards (Central and North East, and the South West). Their combined population at the 2011 census was 13,161.DescriptionDawlish is located at the outlet of a small river, Dawlish Water, between Permian red sandstone cliffs, and is fronted by a sandy beach with the South Devon Railway sea wall and the Riviera Line railway above. Behind this is a central public park, The Lawn, through which Dawlish Water flows.Immediately to the south-west of Dawlish is a headland, Lea Mount, with Boat Cove at its foot and Coryton Cove, the furthest part of the beach accessible by the seawall path, behind it. To the north-east, via the beach or seawall, the coast can be followed some 2 km to Langstone Rock and the resort of Dawlish Warren beyond, although this path is blocked at extreme high water.Dawlish is also known for its black swans, introduced from Western Australia, which live with other exotic waterfowl in a small urban sanctuary on Dawlish Water.
