White House Pier

Plaque inscription - Sutton Pool was originally a naval and sheltered anchorage. Some of the first people to settle on these shores were fishermen. The small fishing community quickly grew to become the medieval town of Plymouth.

In the late 1500s and 1600s large numbers of local fishermen sailed across the Atlantic to fish the rich cod banks off the east coast of the New World.

This building was once the harbourside police station. Officers based here kept a watchful eye on harbour life.

Fishing has always been important here and it is said that in the busiest times it was possible to walk from the pier to North Quay across the decks of fishing boats and trawlers.
