Paignton Carriage Sidings looking to Goodrington Station
Paignton Carriage Sidings looking to Goodrington Station
This is a view from the Paignton Carriage sidings and looking towards the Goodrington sidings and railway station. The closest track is operated by the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway. In the distance can be seen the road bridge crossing the railway and leading to Goodrington Sands beach. The hotel that stands here, on the site of a former military hospital, is the only place in England that the Emperor Napoleon ever set foot whilst visiting injured prisoners of war whilst he was held on board a ship in the bay awaiting his exile.
