Lets explore the written and spoken history of Dowlish Wake.
This delightful and flourishing village has much to offer in the way of history, this is evident in the written work of past professional historians. Using such publications, together with less academic sources, we are able to share what is known more widely. One such source available to us, is that of old newspapers. We can eavesdrop on topics of interest connected to local history as it was seen, by the people in their day. Correspondence columns invited discussion of interesting topics. Such an exchange in the 1920s is of interest to us. In a future article we shall see how several interested and knowledgeable readers, over several weeks, contributed to the topic about the local churchyard that has no church. So we have a community no longer with us but still able to contribute and help us build a collective history.
