Kingswear Castle was built between 1491 - 1502, as an artillery tower for use with heavy cannon. Due to the limited range of cannon at the time, the fort at Kingswear was designed to work alongside Dartmouth Castle on the opposite bank, so that between them they could provide complete cover of the narrow entrance into the harbour.
