Fort Bovisand, Wembury - South Hams

Major C19 fort complex forming part of the ring of defences around Plymouth. Most recently used as a base for training divers, it is now disused. A scheme for resdiential conversion with significant levels of public access and interpretation has been agreed and planning permission was granted in 2017. Enabling works and recording have started and are progressing.
