No consideration of the future of the local area would be complete without including its heritage. Buildings and sites of historic interest include:
- St Mary's Parish Church in Botus Fleming, an historic building originally dedicated in 1259 and restored in 1873.
- The Bidwell (pictured opposite), an ancient well in Botus Fleming. It was constructed in the 14th century and holds a 19th century statue of Saint Mary. The well was restored in the 20th century.
- Moditonham House, the site of the medieval castle of the Moditons.
- Moditonham Quay dating back to the time when Botus Fleming was a centre for cherry orchards, and fruit and vegetables grown in the parish were sent by boat to Plymouth.
