- Culmstock Beacon
Warning beacon. Medieval or C16 origins but rebuilt after a collapse in 1870.
Local stone rubble. Small beehive shaped building. Circular in plan the walls
rise to a slightly projecting eaves under the rounded roof. There is a low flat-
headed doorway to south and a circular opening in the roof approximately 1m across.
There are also 2 loops in the walls and some narrow internal ledges which are
thought to have lodged the fire bars.
This is marked on Donn's map of Devon of 1765 as "Black Down Beacon".
