Plympton Pebble Project

For the last four years Plympton Library has been collecting the stories of local soldiers who lost their lives in the Great War. 

Staff have used online resources including Find My Past and Ancestry (both available for free in Plymouth libraries) to research the lives of servicemen who had a link with Plympton.

The library will be commemorating the end of World War I on Saturday 10 November.  As part of this they will be creating a ‘wave’ of painted pebbles outside the library and are asking the community to get involved. 

Each pebble will be dedicated to a specific man who died in WWI who had a connection to Plympton. The pebbles will then be available for members of the public to pick up and hide somewhere else.  The pebble project is aimed at adults, but children can get involved by making paper poppies for the display.  

Visit Plympton Library to find out how you can get involved.
