|Description||Plymouth U3A's Discovery Group explores topics with a historical interest and the current project is 'Forts and Defences of the South West'. Members spend their meetings on site visits, some of which are ruins, overgrown or on private land. They have already gained knowledge of military architecture and a better understanding of the problems of defending our southern shore.|
