Easy to overlook, not well mapped. Major part of our history. There could be more of the story here and better mapping to this place.

Easy to find when walking around the main tourist sites of Plymouth While the original steps have eroded away with time it's good to put a face to where they once were. Not crowded during our visit so able to get some good photos

Really enjoyed this sight and the history is quite amazing. Especially nice on a sunny summer's day. Also nice to combine with a boat trip
