Plympton Town in Devon
Plympton, otherwise known as Plympton Maurice or Plympton St Maurice or Plympton St Mary or Plympton Erle, is situated in southwestern Devon, 5 miles east of Plymouth. An ancient stannary town, Plympton was an important trading centre in the past for locally mined tin, and a former seaport, before the River Plym silted up and trade moved down the river to Plymouth. Today it is a populous, north-eastern suburb of the city of Plymouth of which it officially became part, along with Plymstock, in 1967. Plympton still has its own town centre (called the Ridgeway), and is itself an amalgamation of several villages, including St Mary's, St Maurice, Colebrook, Woodford, Newnham, Langage and Chaddlewood.
