A tour around the Devonport area to look at some of the older areas. A showery day with some grey skies.
“Shaky Bridge” which crosses Camels Head creek. It had been our intention to walk across the bridge on the footbridge, visible on the left had side of the bridge in the photograph. However, the footbridge is now closed to the public!
A series of views round to Plymouth Hoe.
The view up the Tamar from Devil’s Point.
Cremyll on the left bank.
Devonport South Yard.
Looking out to sea from Devil’s Point - Great Mew Stone just visible on the horizon.
A stone laid in the wall - Marking the famous departure of Charles Darwin.
Cornwall Street area, North Corner.
This area has undergone some refurbishment since I last visited. The prominent cream faced building was a pub when I was last here (The Swan) and the new properties behind did not exist. It is easy to visualise that this was once a popular waterside watering hole with plenty of stories told in the bars!
The remaining pub - The Steam Packet and the old Piermasters House. For some more information on this area follow this link.
