Bayard's Cove Fort
Dartmouth, Devon TQ6 9AX - England, UK
  Share Location Map  
 
 
Bayardís Cove Fort was built in Tudor times to defend the harbour at Dartmouth as part of a large programme of defences implemented by Henry VIII along the south coast of England. The king was aware of the great threat from the sea to attack by the French and Spanish and used this as a third line of defence after Dartmouth Castle and Kingswear Castle. English Heritage manage the small artillery fort at the end of a pier, close to the town.

For centuries sailors have seen this distinctive fortification at the entrance to Dartmouth harbour. Most now, so I am told, barely think about it; leaving it to the tourists to explore its circular walls which are protected for the nation by English Heritage. Due to its location access can sometimes be a little difficult but the fort is open at most reasonable times and is well worth a look inside. You also get an interesting view of the town from the fort. - Michaela78
