Mount Wise, Plymouth

The restoration of Plymouth’s historic water frontage was achieved with a £5.1m HLF application prepared by a Plincke Landscape and Giffords Consulting Engineers. Partnership funding in excess of £1 million was provided by the client team.

In addition to the conservation of listed structures, including a Scheduled Ancient Monument and listed stone pier, new facilities, funded by the HLF, included interactive water and dry play facilities, a toilet block, café and viewing deck. A striking 40m high stainless steel mast forms a focal point within the proposals; making a bold statement of confidence in the regeneration of the area.
