Sheds by the sea return

Further to this about Beachhuts being removed from Teighmouth, the same council Teignbridge has introduced 15 huts at Dawlish Warren, strange, they give with one hand and take away with another.

An icon of the British coast is making a return to a Devon seaside town after a 20-year absence.

Fifteen beach huts have been officially unveiled by Teignbridge Council on the promenade at Dawlish Warren.

Eleven are being offered on three-year leases, with three for weekly or daily hire. One hut will be used for storage. It is hoped that the locally-built brightly coloured huts, with views over Lyme Bay, will add to the resort’s appeal to tourists.

The town’s previous huts on the site – which were privately owned – were removed about 20 years ago after falling into disrepair.
