Prawle Point and the Coast between Start Point and Salcombe Bar: An Illustrated History written by Roger Barrett.
The South Devon coast between Start Point and Salcombe Bar, with Prawle Point, the county's southernmost extremity, at its centre, is well known for its impressive scenery, geology and wildlife. It can also lay claim to a rich and eventful past.
Roger Barrett, local historian and Station Manager at the National Coastwatch Institution Lookout at Prawle Point, describes how people have sought, over the centuries, to defend this coast against the threat of invasion, piracy and smuggling, wrest a living from its shores and safeguard the lives of those in peril on the sea.
