Sitting atop the ridge south of Fort Montagu is Blackbeard’s Tower, a semiderelict cut-stone tower that, according to local lore, was built by Edward Teach – ‘Blackbeard’ – as a lookout tower. Historians point out that it was actually built in the late 18th century, long after the infamous pirate had been killed. Historical uncertainty aside, it’s got a great view.

To reach the tower, you go up an unmarked path next to a green-and-white house called ‘Tower Leigh,’ south of Fox Hill Rd.
