Plotting Plymouth’s Past, the original one year project that began on 28th November 2012 and grew into a two year project, finally finished on 1st November 2014 with the installation and unveiling of a unique boundary stone in Victoria Park. The stone which was commissioned by the Old Plymouth Society, was unveiled by Councillor Michael Fox, Lord Mayor of Plymouth and marks not only the commemoration of the amalgamation of the Three Towns, but also the end of the project. The ceremony was attended by around one hundred spectators and the weather was dry, sunny and warm. After the unveiling the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress joined in the mini bound beating walk around the park with obvious enjoyment, in fact they were reluctant to leave when it was time for them to go. The newly designed trail leaflets were handed out to all present and will be available shortly to all. The website now has over 600 stones and markers that can be viewed and is still being added to. I end this final report with the letter I received at the end of the project from my Team Assistant, Hannah, at the Heritage Lottery Fund.
