Appreciation of the past

Ambitious plans for a new Plymouth History Centre which will celebrate the city's rich heritage have been agreed by senior councillors. The major centre is planned as part of a wide-ranging heritage strategy, which will also include improvements to the city's museum and art gallery
The new centre will see the city's local studies library, Plymouth and West Devon Record Office and the South West Film and Television Archive brought together under one roof.The plans form part of the council's vision to make the museums and archives service a regional centre of excellence by 2010, providing a 'gateway to inspire curiosity about Plymouth's past'.

Plymouth has long neglected its heritage. Lets hope that this exciting project does produce something which can finally provide the promised 'Gateway'
