Royal William Yard | Geo Trail

Geo Trail

Known for its grand collection of historic buildings, this is only part of the story of Royal William Yard. To find out more, we need to travel back some 380 million years! This area has an incredible history - and you can see for yourself when you take a walk around. Take a stroll along the Geo Trail to uncover the ancient past and geology of the area.

We must transport ourselves the Devonian era; a period spanning 60 million years. Plymouth was
a very different place, part of a huge land mass located around where Madagascar is today, with a tropical climate that our coastline could only dream of now.
