Royal William Yard, Plymouth

I had a wonderful evening at the Royal William Yard in Plymouth; superb dinner with friends at the River Cottage Canteen whilst the sun went down in a glorious blaze of colour.

I love the Royal William Yard; it's so vibrant and urban now.  It's amazing architecture and history only serves to enhance its charisma.  It was built between 1826 and 1835 as the major victualling depot for the Royal Navy.  Victualling refers to the provision and storage of food and drink supplies.  (Just imaging all those barrels of rummmmm .... )
