Slapton is a small community in Devon lying midway between Kingsbridge & Dartmouth and is a half mile inland from the famous Slapton Sands. In 2001 the population of the civil parish of Slapton was 473. Slapton was recorded in the Domesday Book as Sladone. The A379 roads runs along the length of Slapton Ley Nature Reserve, the largest freshwater lake in the south west of England. The Reserve is very well known and justifiably attracts visitors from all over the world, for scientific, educational and recreational purposes. If you like your scenery to have a bit of history then Slapton Sands has a very moving story attached to it..... In 1944, the beach was taken over by the allied forces to use as a rehearsal area for the D-Day Landings. Unfortunately, a combination of live ammunition and poor visibility resulted in the deaths of 749 American servicemen. You can read about this exercise and the brave men who lost their lives by clicking here and see the stone monument which was set in place on Slapton Sands to commemorate that event along with a Sherman Tank at nearby Torcross. Today of course Slapton is a popular place for people to take their holiday.
