Slapton Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Dartmoor & South West Devon...








A popular bird watching centre, the village of Slapton sits on a hill looking down on a pretty shingle beach used as a training ground for American troops prior to the D-Day landings in the Second World War.

A square, 14th century tower in the village is an atmospheric remnant of a long-gone Chantry building. Nearby is Slapton Ley, a wetland reserve, which has the largest natural freshwater lake in the West Country.
