Sidmouth is a town overlooking the English Channel in Devon. Sidmouth is a favourite place to retire to and of its population of about 15,000, over 40% are over the age of 65, according to the Office for National Statistics report of 2004. The town is a very popular tourist resort and one of the gateways to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Originally referred to as Sedemuda in the Doomsday Book, Sidmouth was a fishing village but the lack of a harbour or shelter for ships and sailors prevented its growth into a significant port. Sidmouth remained a small village until it became fashionable during the Georgian and Victorian periods for people to 'take the sea air' and the village developed into a successful coastal resort. The fine Georgian and Regency arcitecture bears evidence of this and the villas and mansions are now mostly hotels. Sidmouth is home to the Norman Lockyer Observatory and Planetarium, located on Salcombe Hill. The facility, completed in 1912, fell into disuse but was saved from demolition by the appeals of enthusiasts to East Devon District Council. The observatory now operates as a science education project and is open to the public.
