Lymington: Admiral Arthur Philip’s house

A plaque has been placed on the front of Clarks shoe shop in Lymington’s High Street recording that it was once home of Admiral Arthur Philip who was the first Governor of New South Wales and founder Sydney.

Lymington Rotary Club has renewed existing plaques in the town and added new ones including the one for the admiral.

This year is the 200th anniversary of Admiral Arthur Phillip’s death on 31 August 1814.
