A Potted History of Marjon

Plymouth Marjon University

01752 636700 Derriford Road | Plymouth | Devon | PL6 8BH

Most Plymothians know Marjon. Many will have worked there, studied there or used the sports and recreation spaces. Some will remember the ‘new build’ up on the hill back in the 1970s, or the new student arrivals in Devonport in the 1960s. 

Maybe not everyone knows that it’s celebrating its 180th anniversary this year, or that its links to Plymouth began even before that. 

So, to help celebrate this anniversary, and Plymouth History Festival 2020, here’s a brief look at some of Marjon’s historic links to Plymouth, and some lovely images to enjoy, too.

Please contact gfewings@marjon.ac.uk if you have information or memories to share – she’d love to hear from you!
