Area Guides


Plymouth is England's most southern city located in Devon between the mouths of the river Plym and the river Tamer. To the north of Plymouth is the Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles. Plymouth itself has a population of well over 260,000 and has a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities. There is a mainline train service to London Paddington and to Penzance in Cornwall. Brittany Ferries operates a regular ferry service from Plymouth to France and northern Spain.


Crownhill is an area of northern Plymouth, in the county of Devon. This mostly 1930s suburb grew around the junction of the A386 Tavistock Road and the A374 road (later the A38 and now the B3413) from Plympton to Saltash Passage. Following realignment of the A386 in the 1970s the old Tavistock road has been isolated and renamed Morshead Road. There is a pub, a post office, a few convenience stores, many takeaways and an Indian restaurant. Crownhill is the home of the divisional police headquarters and a Catholic boys comprehensive school. There is also a large fire station and close by a big garden centre. The district is very popular because it is very close to the A38 Parkway/Devon Expressway and is near to the local general hospital at Derriford without being so far from the city centre four miles south that it is isolated and inaccessible as are so many of Plymouth's satellite suburbs. 


Derriford is an established residential area approximately four miles north of the city centre offering a variety of local services and amenities lying within close proximity of Derriford Hospital, Derriford Business Park and The University of St Mark and St John. Derriford also offers convenient access to major routes in all directions including the city centre and also north towards Dartmoor which provides a variety of recreational activities. 


Manadon is a great location, close to popular schools and giving easy access to the A38, north and south Plymouth and to the city centre via Mannamead Road and Mutley Plain. Morrisons, petrol stations and pubs are also only a short distance. 


Southway benefits from an excellent range of local facilities including easy access to Dartmoor National Park, the 'Park and Ride' transport facility to the City centre which is some five miles distant, the Tesco Superstore and various pubs, shops and schools
