The original settlement was a little upstream, where the fertile valley was cultivated. Shaldon is built on reclaimed land from silt, and there is a retaining wall that prevents the sea from returning to the beaches. Gradually the inhabitants turned to fishing, although the village still has a very rural feel.

Shaldon is a village and civil parish in South Devon, England. It is located on the south bank of the estuary of the River Teign, opposite the town of Teignmouth. The village has been described as "a quaint English drinking village, with a fishing problem";[1] it is a popular bathing place and is characterised by Georgian architecture.

Shaldon was located in the hundred of Wonford. The original river settlement was upstream in Ringmore where the valley was farmed and the inhabitants were hidden from the sea. Up to the beginning of the 20th Century Ringmore had many working farms, extensive apple and other orchards, including cider apples, watercress beds, and withy beds used for making lobster pots. There were also shipbuilding and repair yards on the waterfront.
