“I left Plymouth in 1985 and moved to Kent to work in a field I couldn't back home. I'm thinking of coming home but a lot of what I read on this site isn't encouraging. Why should I return? ? I'm mid fifties with children of 9 and 7. What makes Plymouth the place to live?Oh and this is the second time I've tried to post this discussion, so the website is working well!”

“ajannerinkentI went away for 32 years in 1974 for work and came back here 6 years ago and love it.Kent is lovely too and it's close proximity to London and the channel ports is very handy. However, back here in Plymouth and it's surrounds you have breathtaking views of both sea and moors. I try to go on The Hoe everyday and the view is always fantastic and one that my wife and I will never tire of.Ignore the doom mongers who often infest this site with their negative views and come back!”

“yes and we have just spoilt it all with a massive incinerator. is it any wonder some people are negative? Plymouth has massive potential. lets not let ourselves down, the naval museum is one of the jewels of the city and i hope we can do lots more using them as an example!”

“Can't wait to return to Plymouth. I know things have changed but it's really sad that I feel safer living here? From being mugged or even worse in Plymouth? Or for that matter anywhere in U. K. Its really sad. Born and bred in Plymouth and I remember the days when neighbours looked out for each other. Also our parents could visit a neighbour and leave the house and not have to lock the door! How times have changed. Plymouth? Be proud to live there! I am proud of telling anyone of where I came from. The history of Plymouth? Just go the Barbican! Plymouth Hoe? So much history be proud of Plymouth. ajannerinkent go home to Plymouth. No worse anywhere else I guess”

“They could also keep some of our aging mothballed fleet in the dry docks just south of North Corner and have them open for the public to enjoy. So much potential for some of the Victorian era buildings and dry docks to be used to their full potential. I am coming home in September for a few days. How do I get access to the South Yard ropery and any other parts of South Yard for a visit? What are the costs and where is the parking?”
