Dawlish Methodist Church is situated in the centre of Dawlish beside the Brook and the famous black swans.
The foundation stone was laid on the 18th March 1861 by Ebenezer Pardon of Dawlish
Water In the same year Dickens wrote ‘Great Expectations’ and it was also the year
that Mrs Beeton brought out her well-
‘Book of Household Management.
In 1883 the schoolroom was added at the rear of the church. It was in
this year that the Boy’s Brigade was founded in Glasgow,
and Robert Louis Stevenson wrote ‘Treasure Island’.
The old schoolroom has been extensively changed in recent years
and we now have a large modern hall and kitchen,
plus ladies, gents and disabled toilets.
There is disabled access to both the front of the church and into the hall, so that anyone is able to attend our many activities.
