Site is part of town’s history and key to industry

MADAM - I read with amazement  the letter from Barrie Raby, did he not see this before buying a property overlooking this long established site (150 years).

MADAM - I read with amazement the letter from Barrie Raby, did he not see this before buying a property overlooking this long established site (150 years). The site essential for the working of Sidmouth. (Sidmouth has a major shortage of industrial space).

This is no worse than any other industrial site and in fact when the railway was there 45 years ago it was covered with Coal and Coke heaps - 1000s of tons of it, along with the gas works and a railway distribution depot. I can assure you it was not any better and, in fact, the trains running from 5am to midnight, plus steaming and coaling, up made it a very busy and noisy place.

By the way, the trains would now be running through the house if still running!
