Devonport was built up around the dockyard in the late 1600s. Much was destroyed in the Second World War but iconic buildings such as the Guildhall and the Oddfellows Hall still survive. Many streets have disappeared and many of the grand buildings that once stood in Fore Street were completely destroyed during the Blitz. Some buildings such as the Old Chapel have adapted with the times, going from being a chapel to a public house to finally becoming a supermarket. Many old buildings still remain such as the shops and pubs in Albert Road and it's still possible to walk along the cobbled roads that people walked over 100 years ago. Fore Street has now been opened up and features many new homes and Devonport Park has been restored to its former glory. Derek Tait's illustrated tour shows the changing face of Devonport with its many old and new buildings as well as the recent rejuvenation work.
