How the square will look


A tired forgotten corner is to be turned into a new public square to show off one of Plymouth’s oldest buildings as part of Mayflower 400 preparations.

The area outside the 15th Century Prysten House is to get some love and attention with plans to replace the 1970s paving with beautiful granite paving and an Elizabethan Garden pattern marked out with cobbles. New trees will be planted and new street furniture installed.

A planning application for listed building consent is being submitted this week by the Council so that the work directly outside the former merchant’s house can get underway in the new year. The location is also set to be included on the Mayflower trail.

But it’s not just furniture and floors that are getting a makeover, flora and fauna will be putting on a show for Mayflower, thanks to volunteers from Minster Church of St Andrew’s and the Mayflower Makers.

The group plan to add even more colour in the churchyard overlooking the newly created square and they are using the minister’s magnificent Piper window as inspiration.
