ROADS AND STREETS IN OLD DEVONPORT

DOCKWALL STREET

Dockwall Street got its name from having the wall of the Royal Dockyard on the western side and houses only on the eastern side.

Its principle building was the Anglican Church of Saint Mary.  The foundation stone of the Zoar Mission Chapel was laid in December 1882.

At the Devonport Town Council Meeting on Thursday July 10th 1884 the Highways and Streets Committee announced that they had changed the name of Dockwall Street to Edinburgh Road.  They do not seem to have informed the inhabitants, though, as Dockwall Street was still being used as late as 1889 in adverts for the Zoar Mission Chapel.
