SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION FOR FORT PICKLECOMBE Lord Palmerston in the 19th Century commissioned Fort Picklecombe, which was one of several Forts within the area to defend the Naval base. After the War the Fort stood derelict until the 1970s when developers bought the Fort and the conversion into 103 residential apartments took place. The magnificent coastline of the Rame Peninsula and Mount Edgcumbe House and Park are all within easy walking distance of Fort Picklecombe. Also nearby are the renowned beaches of Whitsand Bay with its fine golden sand, excellent swimming and surfing facilities. The City of Plymouth is easily accessible via the Torpoint Ferry or the Tamar Bridge. The Cremyll Ferry, a regular foot-passenger service, runs from Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe with a second ferry running during the summer months from the Barbican in Plymouth to Cawsand Beach.
