The historic town of Totnes stands at the head of navigation on the River Dart. Local myth says that the town was founded by Brutus, the grandson of Aeneas of Troy. Brutus is said to have stood on a rock on what is now Totnes High Street to survey the location. There was a Saxon fortified town here, and the Normans built a stone tower atop a high motte. The castle still stands, by the Norman church of St Mary. A pair of medieval gateways survive, as does the 17th-century guildhall.
