Paignton Harbor

Paignton is a seaside town on the coast of Tor Bay in Devon, England. Together with Torquay and Brixham it forms the borough of Torbay which was created in 1998. The Torbay area is a holiday destination known as the English Riviera. The harbor was established in the 18th century and the local council has managed it since 1935. Today it remains a hive of activity, especially during the summer months and a vast range of different users enjoy the benefits of this unassuming maritime gem.

Formerly written Peynton, Payngton and Paington, the name is derived from “Paega” an Anglo-Saxon personal name, “ing” meaning “the people of” and “ton” an enclosure, estate or homestead, the original Anglo-Saxon settlement.

Creating a Lush Green Environment

Inside the two biomes at Eden Project (in England) are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The covered biomes are constructed from a tubular steel (hex-tri-hex) with mostly hexagonal external cladding panels made from the thermoplastic ETFE.

The Rainforest Biome is the largest indoor rainforest in the world with over 1,000 varieties of plants.

Eden Project

Dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World by some, the Eden Project in England is a dramatic global garden housed in tropical biomes that nestle in a crater the size of 30 football fields. More than just a huge, tropical garden, Eden is a gateway into the relationships between plants and people. Not only a mind-blowing visitor attraction, Eden is also fast-becoming a unique resource for education and knowledge towards a sustainable future. The project is located in a reclaimed china clay pit, located 2 km from the town of St Blazey and 5 km from the larger town of St Austell.

Falmouth Harbor

Falmouth, England is famous for its harbor; it is the deepest natural harbor in Western Europe and reputed to be the third largest in the world. While Falmouth’s maritime activity has much declined from its heyday, the docks are still a major contributor to the town’s economy. It is the largest port in Cornwall. Falmouth remains a cargo port and the bunkering and repair of vessels and the transfer of cargo also keep the port’s facilities busy.
