Our big event, planned for early May 2020 is the Hawthorn Walk or in French "La route de l'aubépine". We have given it a French name because our aim is to discover and document a practical but enjoyable walking route from the railway station down through Stonehouse to the ferry terminal. It is for visitors who are travelling without a car from France and arriving at, or departing from the Mill Bay ferry port with Brittany Ferries.
We have completed initial research and walking and have begun to discover interesting historical places, mainly from the nineteenth century as Stonehouse developed its status with a Town Hall, now gone, and at least two important secondary schools, still standing but converted to housing. Our aim is to build a route that has stories to tell along the way, is convenient and well-mapped for visitors and ends with a café. In fact, we have made a discovery already of a café and restaurant at the port terminal. We are hoping that other cafés and attractions will emerge as the event draws closer.
Our researchers and travel-writer students will be on the walk to collect more information and to capture their own experiences and emotions of the places along the route and this will begin to form an archive of way-tales for future explorers of this side of Plymouth city.
