The Story of Warfleet

The Story of Warfleet
By Ray Freeman

Warfleet Creek and the land and houses immediately surrounding it, including Gallants Bower, were once part of a manor and parish quite separate from Dartmouth. The name Warfleet, popularly believed to have derived from an assembly of warships at some time in history, in fact derives from “Welflut” the early English name for the stream that runs down the Week valley into the tidal creek. Ray Freeman’s story spans the period from the 14th century, when the people of Warfleet attended services at the first chapel of St. Petrox, to the comparatively recent acquisition of Gallants Bower by the National Trust.
