Plymouth: the Sound and the Breakwater
Plymouth: the Sound and the Breakwater
Looking south east with two warships and a fleet auxiliary probably the RFA Fort George or Fort Victoria, dating from the early 1990s inside the breakwater. The destroyer on the left appears to be from a foreign navy: the white D7 is not in Royal Navy typographic house style. The vessel on the right might be one of the new T45 class destroyers, possibly HMS Daring. The breakwater was designed by Rennie also noted for old London Bridge - and constructed between 1812 and 1840. Its completion provided Plymouth and Devonport with one of the largest harbours in the UK. Beyond: the coastline at Wembury and the Great Mew Stone
