Plymouth, New George Street – Saturday 3rd November 2018

The other Waterstones in Plymouth is in a red-brick neo-Georgian building. Called Leicester Harmsworth House after Sir Robert Leicester Harmsworth who acquired the Western Morning News in 1920, it used to house their offices and has a lovely feel about it.

Located on Plymouth Hoe, this was originally the third Eddystone Lighthouse in Cornwall.  It was damaged and the top portion was erected in Plymouth as a memorial to the designer and civil engineer, John Smeaton.
