This is the remains of an Artillery Fort, built in 16th century to protect from any unwelcome visitors - Visitors are Welcome there now!
The ground floor remains area is where the Gun Ports, they make interesting frames to take photos of the river Dart.

When visiting Dartmouth we always walk onto Bayards Cove and further to the fort. It's an interesting place for adults and children to see and gives a fantastic view up and down the River Dart.

There’s not a lot to do in Dartmouth. Really not. After you’ve done the boutique type shops & eaten a pastie you’re pretty stuck. Well, for those with a penchant for history & architecture have a wander down the cobbled street to this little structure poking out against the seascape. It’s not for those that aren’t very stable if you want to walk up the steps behind it, or get across the uneven cobble road, and if you’re expecting grandeur inside; don’t. I enjoyed the history (attached in a photo), the fact it was free, and if you leave through the original access on the left of the signage the view from where the steps finish is beautiful. You can also see out through the 11 holes designed for cannons all around the front too.
Really English Heritage could do with cleaning it up as it’s rather overgrown now and crumbling away which is a shame

Located in central Dartmouth it overviews the entire canal and the sea which looks absolutely beautiful. Definitely a point of interest to visit when visiting.

There's not a lot to see but an interesting bit of history being at no cost and easily accessible certainly worth doing as an addition to the castle or if in the area but do not travel specifically will literally take a minute to see it all.
