I’m Plymouth born and bred in Devonport 98 years ago, but it’s never too late to clean up the beautiful and historic Plymouth sound,

The Ships Project is an amazing endeavour that brings vitality and life to our hidden maritime history. The 1,000 Tyres Project is the perfect focus for engaging us in our underwater landscape and the need to manage our planet with greater care. It feeds the imagination and cleans-up the environment. The whole concept is simply perfect. Well done to all involved.

A great project that should be replicated throughout ports and harbours of the UK, and used to educate people to stop dumping in our coastal waters. Go get em Mal!!

Great project. Hope you get over the line with this one. As a PADI Divemaster, I use the waters around Plymouth a lot, so am always happy to support any projects like this.
