ENGLISH HOUSE DEMOLISHED
The English House on the Teignmouth Road, Maidencombe was demolished today to make way for a housing development. A particularly nostalgic moment for me as I can personally recall the history of the site from 1960 when it was the popular Rocombe Brae guest house. It then was converted into the Dartmoor Maiden, a licensed restaurant, before being sold in 2003. Finally, it was renamed the English House, also a restaurant and managed to eke out a living until a few years ago when it finally closed for business. It is noted that the house next door is up for sale.
