I grew up in Babbacombe in the 1950s and 60s and it was such a friendly busy place with the local shops Stephens and Bowdens the two greengrocers, Canns the fishmongers, the butchers and of course the fish and chip shop in Princes Street - so much nicer than the present one even though it has won so many awards. Also in Reddenhill Road there was a small Nat West Bank and a Creamery and also Babbacombe Library which was at the back of a gift shop. In the summer the place would be heaving with visitors. My parents owned a gift shop here and we were so busy but now it is dead in the summer. I would love to hear anyone else's memories too.
