Francis Drake supposedly spied the Spanish fleet from this grassy headland overlooking Plymouth Sound (the city's wide bay); the bowling green on which he finished his game was probably where his statue now stands. The wide villa-backed promenade features scores of war memorials, including the immense Plymouth Naval Memorial , which commemorates Commonwealth WWI and WWII sailors who have no grave but the sea.
