Streets of Shaldon
Shaldon’s Historic Bridge. The way most visitors arrive in Shaldon. First built of wood in 1827 it was rebuilt in 1931, and then widened and improved in the early part of this century. The toll house on the Teignmouth side still stands there !
The Strand & Marine Parade Shaldon-some of the house along here were built by the Newfoundland Fishing company as fishermen’s homes. Each had their own portion of beach for storage and boats, these of course now are little gardens. The Ferryboat Inn was originally called the Crown.
The end of Marine Parade where the Ness can be seen in the background
Shoreside -up stream going towards Ringmore- these houses were recently built on the siteof an old holiday camp site
Riverside-this area was built to keep the high waters away from the most low lying areas-the far end of this is now the site of the Clipper cafe-originally a large coal store, the jetty was still used for unloading coal in the nineteenth century.
Albion Street runs up from the slipway on Riverside, and was once the main route to enter the village before the bridge was built. There was a ford here, and cattle and horses were brought across, no 17 Albion street, now a private house, was once the ‘Horseferry Inn’, at the end of that street is a side path with the original cobbled paving ( cobbles bought along the coast from Oddicombe)-most of Shaldon then had cobbles, also from that area came the limestone kerbstones and gutters that line the streets of Shaldon.

Middle Street -at the junction of Dagmer street and Middle street there used to be the original village green
Sunny Patch - originally the site site of three old cottages which were demolished a long time ago -the land was then donated to the village by a local benefactor. The Patch provides a lovely corner for both visitor and local, with the area having been landscaped by Devon CC Ammenities, and donations of trees and shrubs by Teignbridge local council
