STOKE Also referred to by its earlier name of Stoke Damerel, which is a parish, that was once part of historical Devonport. In 1914, Devonport and Plymouth amalgamated with Stonehouse: the new town took the name of Plymouth. Since the amalgamation Stoke has been an inner suburb of Plymouth. Stoke is now densely built up with houses and apartments, dating back to late Georgian, with a predominance of early Victorian, Edwardian and fewer, 1930s homes. Bisected by the main railway line from Paddington to Penzance. The parish church is notable not only for its evolving architecture, but also its contents and historical connections. The area has been prosperous for several hundred years, and there are some distinguished private houses (several of which feature in Nikolaus Pevsner's book - "The Buildings of South Devon".) There are many examples of properties designed by famed Georgian architect Foulston, within the suburb.
Stoke Damerel and Stuart Road Primary Schools educates pupils of ages 4-11, whilst secondary school children may attend Stoke Community College and is the home of Devonport High School for Boys Grammar School and Devonport Services Rugby Club. Flanked by Central park, Victoria Park and Devonport Park, there are acres of leisure space on the doorstep, with Plymouth Argyle Football Club and the Plymouth Life Centre, both considered to be within walking distance. Plymouth City Centre, is approximately one and a half miles away.
