The remains of a late 18th century battery, superseded by and incorporated within a mid 19th century fort and battery with associated glacis. Historical sources provide details of a battery of 1779. A pair of granite sett gun platforms provide the only visible remains of the 1779 battery, although below ground remains will survive. In 1860 construction started on a new fort and battery following a recommendation of 1858 that it it should be built to defend against ships entering Cawsand Bay.

A boundary stone on the north east side of the fort, one of a number which indicated the extent of the War Department property, reads W-D 1867 and has been taken as indicating that the fort was completed in that year. The fort of 1860 includes a substantial loopholed curtain wall of limestone ashlar which mostly survives for its entire circuit. Inside the fort are seven gun positions on the seaward face, most retaining elements of their racer rails and two retaining central pivots of reused canon. Lying within the array of gun positions is a partly sunken earth covered expense magazine with surviving alcoves and shelving. A further expense magazine lies just to the south of the seaward gun positions.The main underground magazine is located in the centre of the fort under a traverse cavalier. Mounted on top of the cavalier are four granite gun platforms.

The Armament was removed by 1903 and although it remained in occupation during WW1 the fort was released by the military in 1926. It remained derelict until conversion to housing. New Housing and garages have been built on top of the ramparts along the sea faces (East Wall) and the barrack block (South Wall) converted and adapted into modern housing. Some of the original features remain.

Kingsand and Cawsand are famous for their unspoilt narrow streets, with character cottages as well as amazing coastal views. There is also a healthy selection of pubs, restaurants and shops as well as nearby schools and churches. Nearby you will also find the sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay which are popular with surfers. The area has be designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
