Incorporated into : 1974 South Hams
Sable upon Water in base Azure and between two Keys wards upward and outward a triple towered Castle the Portcullis raised and upon each outer tower a Banner all Argent.
The arms were historically recorded during the Visitation of 1572 for the Borough of Totnes. Transferred to the town council on April 16, 1975.
The device is a water gatehouse and seems to indicate the pride of the burgesses in the ancient importance of the Borough as a royal fortress.
The Castle was founded by one Juhell, a Breton, shortly after the Norman Conquest.
