Work to commence on new Plymouth history centre

Work is abou to commence on constructing a new Plymouth based history centre, thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £14.8 million grant, following a previous grant of £940,300 to progress intial designs for the project. The new centre will create a single attraction out of the current city museum, central library and St Luke's Church.

From The Plymouth Herald newspaper: "The centre will see five of Plymouth's major heritage collections come together in one location. The Plymouth and West Devon Record Office, South West Film and Television Archive and South West Image Bank will join the Local Studies and Reference Collection and the City Museum and Art Gallery's significant art, human history and natural history collections on the Tavistock Place/North Hill site."
