HALDON TERRACE

This was an exclusive address. It had a permanent gardener and held croquet tournaments and afternoon teas on the lawn. The gates barred all non-residents but the gardens were visible from the Cottage Hospital. Several of the Hospital donors lived here and provided “recommends” for poorer inhabitants of Dawlish. In 1970, a health centre was built at the bottom of the communal garden. It is now a vet’s practice.
