The original river settlement was upstream in Ringmore where the valley was farmed and the inhabitants were hidden from the sea.

There were also shipbuilding and repair yards on the waterfront.Shaldon itself is built on reclaimed land and there is a retaining wall, built around 1800, to prevent the river returning to its beaches.Local governmentShaldon is part of Teignbridge local government district, which was created in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972.
