Cockwood and harbour
Cockwood is a small village on the west side of the Exe Estuary in Devon. Lying between the villages of Dawlish Warren and Starcross, it is separated from the estuary by the main railway line between Exeter and Penzance, and is set around a small tidal harbour which boats must reach via a bridge under the railway line.
Cockwood has two public houses. The Anchor Inn which is on the harbour front and the Ship Inn, nearer the village hall. The Anchor Inn is over 450 years old and was originally opened as a Seamen's Mission. It was a haven for seamen and smugglers.
