Date:1950 - 1951
Summary:Promontory Fort. "The Castle" situation on Castle Head, is a strong frontier fort overlooking the Cornish territory. The position is a bold headland rising high from the surrounding country and precipitately descending to the River Tamar, which makes a convex curve at its base: it then commands two reaches of the river, and would have been a powerful deterrent to the raids of the Cornabii of the opposite bank.
