The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth


Royal Botanical Gardens, Plymouth


Located in Stonehouse near to the railway embankment which crossed over Union Street. It was located between the modern day Rendle Street and Flora Street. These both have a connection to the lost gardens. Flora is obvious but Rendle Street was named after the nurseryman William Rendle who laid out the gardens and set them up.
