After having to pack it in early the other night I can now finish my piece about the Barbican. This is the original port of Plymouth, overlooked by Plymouth Castle. When the castle was built at the end of the 14thC. the town was called Sutton, the main port still being Plympton but the silting up of the River Plym led to the port moving downsteam. Only a tiny part of the castle remains, just a bit of wall near the Admiral McBride. It was replaced after the Civil War by the Citadel and fell into ruin.
Sutton Harbour still has an active fishing fleet and a new fish market.
Please forgive my self indulgence, just a bit of nostalgia.
Back on the boat tomorrow.
