The Daymark was constructed in 1864 on behalf of the Dartmouth Harbour Commissioners.

The hollow, octagonal tower is built of limestone at 80ft (24m) high on tall arched legs. It was built as a navigational aid to mariners to the position of the harbour entrance. It is visible for many miles out to sea. Dartmouth harbour is notoriously difficult to find from the sea.
