Salcombe Castle is a stone artillery fortress, founded to protect the harbour by Henry VIII. Standing on an isolated rock, are the 16th century remains of a curtain wall, flanked by a large round tower and a small square tower. The castle was abandoned after Civil War slighting and its seaward defences have been completely eroded away. Visit pending. 17 miles north-east is Dartmouth Castle.
Salcombe Castle is located in the town centre, on North Sands beach. 23 miles south-east of Plymouth, on the A379-A381.
The site is freely accessible at low tide, in daylight hours.
