Plaque plan for old Falmouth Royal Navy sailors' home

Falmouth Packet: Plaque plan for old Falmouth Royal Navy sailors' home Plaque plan for old Falmouth Royal Navy sailors' home

The site of a former Royal Navy sailors’ home and hospital in Falmouth could soon be recognised with the introduction of a plaque detailing the building’s history.

For 104 years, between 1852 and 1956, the home and hospital was based at 3 Bank Place and took in sailors of all nationalities.

The town’s mayor, Geoffrey Evans, has been asked to consider whether it would be ‘appropriate and acceptable’ to place a plaque on the wall of the building.

He told councillors, inquiries would be made to determine who owns the building now and he would report back at a future meeting.

I think it would be a good idea to have a plaque, there are currently many in Helston, Mullion, Porthleven etc, I believe it is nice for tourists and locals alike, to have on the spot information as to the previous historic use of buildings, or relevant dates, events etc.
