A taster of things to come at the mouth of the Dart
Jun. 2021
Nothing much more than an empty circular stone fort, adjacent to the Historic quay where the Dartmouth Pilgrims first departed from. The Fort was just one part of the defences for the (medieval ) then important port of Dartmouth.

Close to Town

Easy to get to and provides a free experience of early Dartmouth defences. Nothing really to attract your attention.

More hype than substance.

Certainly worth a stroll through as you wander southwards along the riverfront, but that stroll through will take around 15 seconds, or a tad longer if you stop to read the minimal information board. Climb back up the steps to the top road for some great views across the river to Kingswear.

Walked Through

Not really very much to see at the Fort but a nice walk through on way to Dartmouth Castle. Can't really say any more than that.

Don't go out of your way to visit this. it is a few minutes only and you are done, it is free to enter so if on the way to the castle have a look

Its free which is unusual for English Heritage places although its so small even they'd have a nerve to charge an entry fee

Stunning views from this old Fort
Sep. 2020
Lovely panoramic views straight down the River down to the sea. Worth a visit, however the fort is a ruin so don't expect too much, but the surrounding scenery is stunning. Take the steps up to the higher level above the fort for a walk along the river banks. Some lovely pubs for refreshments!!

Time to stand and stare...
Sep. 2020
Short walk over cobbled stones from the town to an atmospheric small fort which would have been the last defense of the town if necessary. Easy to see what is going on here even without the help of the information bords. Pleasant place to while away an idle hour looking at the view and any activity on the water.

A shot stroll
Sep. 2020
A ruined fort - lots of gun embrasures. The street leading up to it has a great cobbled surface, and the visit to the fort was made worthwhile by that

Interesting, but not a lot to see
Sep. 2020
If you are walking along the front, it is worth visiting, but there is not a lot to see. OK historical information
