Plymouth is a large sea-port, situated between the mouths of the rivers Plym and Tamar, with an excellent natural harbour capable of safely containing 1000 boats. There are actually three harbours, Catwater, Sutton Pool, and Hamoaze. The first is the mouth of the Plym, and affords a safe and commodious harbour for merchant ships, but is seldom entered by ships of war. The second is frequented by merchant ships only, and is almost surrounded by the houses of the town. The third inlet, which is the mouth of the Tamar, is the harbour for the Royal Navy.

Devon County, in which Plymouth is located, reaches from the Bristol to the English Channel and is bounded by Cornwall, and Somersetshire, and Dorsetshire. It is very hilly, and abounds in huge granite rocks, some of whose peaks are above 1500 feet in height. The highland is covered with wide moors, of which Dartmoor is the most extensive. But in the valleys and lower ground the soil is fertile. Its main rivers are the Exe, the Culm, the Dart, the Plym, the Tamar, and the Otter. Some parts of its coasts are composed of lofty cliffs, but at others there is a beautiful sandy shore. Limestone, granite, some building-stone, and a species of wood-coal are found here, as well as some kinds of variegated marble. It produces corn and fruit trees, especially apples, from which cider is made. Its fisheries also are of value.

Plymouth is a good launch point for exploring the towns and attractions of Devon and Cornwall.
