Historical Description

Start Point, a headland in the S of Devonshire, 9½ miles S by W of Dartmouth. A lighthouse was erected on it in 1836, and shows both a revolving light for the open channel, and a fixed light for inshore. Start Bay extends about 7 miles from the headland northward, but makes only a slight incurvature on the coast.
