The Old Vicarage, Weech Road, Dawlish
"The owner of a crumbling grade two listed building in Teignbridge faces legal action unless something is done to stop the building collapsing. The Old Vicarage in Weech Road, Dawlish, is owned by a London man and has been empty for 20 years. The property was listed in 1951 as a grade two building of special architectural and historic importance. The original house is thought to date from the 17th century and a later wing was added in 1846. It is constructed of traditional Devon cob with a slate roof, historic trusses and stable pavers. The property is a good example of a simple but historic curtilage building, and is situated close to the Dawlish Conservation Area. But now there are holes in the roof, pigeons live in the loft space, the windows are broken and part of the ground floor is missing" LinkExternal link The above piece appeared in 2005; the full account of the situation then is at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . Little seems to have changed.

According to LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) , "many years ago there was an idea to run a railway line around the back of Dawlish and this building was earmarked as the potential station."
