Dartmouth Illustrated part VII
This profound image from
17 years ago is fittingly the last of this series, we are
renaming this section "Memories of Dartmouth" and will
feature images from the birth of the camera-obscura until
the end of the last century. So here is the challenge,
who has the earliest image of Dartmouth?
Dartmouth History web site
Wally Fleet reports "The new Dartmouth History Research
Group Website is now up and running. The site is
designed to assist those interested in researching the
history of Dartmouth and its environs.
It has been produced by group members in order to ensure
that copies of documents and family records from
residents, businesses and public services such as The
Town Council are recorded for use by future generations.
The site has been designed to make access to information
and the location of documents as easy as possible using
either the A to Z facility, category listings or the
search page. Records that are currently on line include
the 1861 & 1891 census for Dartmouth & some villages.
Burial records for all the Dartmouth churches & the
Dartmouth Cemetery. Details of the groups publications
including copies of books that are out of print. Other
information is also available with more being added as
time permits. To view the site go to
Mark Godfrey invited the Dartmouth dot TV crew to see for
themselves what the Dart Marina complex is all about.
It's a big place and it is going to take a few Dartmouth
News editions to go through it.
Wildfire is a relaxing and informal bar/bistro with a
wide selection of drinks and locally sourced food. You
can while away the hours watching the boats sail by and be
pampered with wine, fruit juices and food. Away from
the bustle of the town, this exclusive environment could be
the new experience, that like us, you will want to revisit.
One of our team had the infamous "Wildfire burger, triple
cooked chips & yellow pepper relish" it wasn't as expensive
as the "word on the street" suggests, worth every penny is
our verdict. And you will never see chips like it
anywhere. The "Stir fried king prawn & clams, bok
choy, cashew nuts, sugar snaps, shitake mushroom, noodles,
honey & soy syrup" was a visual feast. Did we like it?
yes we did! And you will too.

Big boat in harbour
A somewhat large Super
Yacht sailed in to Dart Harbour last week. All efforts
to find out who the owner was failed, why? who was this
mystery person? Dartmouth dot TV staff regularly
attended the Fort Lauderdale Super Yacht shows, where you
can choose the colour coordinated leather on your Bell Jet
Ranger Helicopter, that will disappear into a stealth hanger
inside the boat. Scantily clad young women were two a
penny and rather passé , the "real" contenders had "real
live" colour coordinated Panthers on a chain to show you how
different their $100M project was! The staff and
running costs can easily reach £5M a year, so your lottery
win won't buy the yacht and probably wouldn't even run it
for just one year!
