Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery

Plymouth Breakwater is a 1,560 metre stone breakwater protecting Plymouth Sound and the anchorages near Plymouth, Devon, England. It is 13 metres wide at the top and the base is 65 metres. It lies in about 10 metres of water. Around 4 million tons of rock were used in its construction in 1812 at the then-colossal cost of £1.5 million (equivalent to £87.2 million today).

Nigel Overton, Curator (City and Maritime Heritage) at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, presents a brief history of the Breakwater.
