Plymouth History Heroes

While we’re undertaking our major programme of work to transform the existing Museum and Art Gallery, Central Library and St Luke’s Church buildings into a new, unique visitor attraction – the Box, Plymouth – we’ll be highlighting some of the well and lesser-known people who have helped put Plymouth on the map.

Read our #PHHeroes posts as we share information about their achievements, legacy and impact.

If you’d like to suggest someone why not send an email to with some details about them and ideally an image or two that we can use.
