Plymouth Naval War Memorial

by grayfo

After the First World War (1914-18), the Imperial War Graves Commission, was asked to find a way of commemorating the men who had died in the War but who had no known graves. For the Royal Navy, whose deaths occurred at sea, this posed a problem. Constructing a similar memorial in each of the three ports from which the Royal Navy’s ships were manned -- Chatham, Plymouth and Portsmouth, solved it. The design would be of a unique naval form and each would serve as a marker for shipping.

The memorial tower is of Portland stone supported by four corner buttresses each with a lion. At the base are brass plaques upon, which are the names of over 7,000 sailors who lost their lives in the First World War.

There is also an inscription in bronze that reads: ~ In honour of the Navy and to the abiding memory of those ranks and ratings of this Port who laid down their lives in the defence of the Empire and have no other grave than the sea.~

Smeaton's Tower

by Goner

This Lighthouse is picture perfect as it sits 72-feet above the harbor. If you can walk the 93 stairs, I didn't, but they say you can see for miles up there on a clear day.

The lighthouse was originally designed by the engineer John Smeton and erected it on the Eddystone reef in 1759 at a cost of £40,000, but was taken down in the early 1880s when it was discovered that the sea was undermining the rock it was standing on. Approximately two thirds of the structure was moved stone by stone to its current resting place on the Hoe restoring it to its original glory.

Dartmoor National Park

by Pierre_Rouss

This huge wilderness area (about 1000 sq km), composed of moorland and forest, is full of footpath, hundreds of miles of trails across the moor, among a population of grazing cattle, sheeps and horses.

During my ten years in the navy as a nurse I worked for a while in the lovely city of Plymouth.
Unfortunately then there was no Virtual Tourist so I have not kept notes of places to stay or eat etc. but I hope this will give an impression of the city and the lovely places around it.
