The poignant display marked the centenary of the First World War and featured a wave of poppies cascading up the naval memorial made from some of the ceramic poppies that were originally displayed at the Tower of London in 2014. Each individual flower represents a life lost on the battlefields in the First World War.
Since the display was unveiled back in August, over 300,000 people flocked to see it.
It is here where Sir Francis Drake, intrepid explorer and local hero, is immortalised in a statue, situated just a few metres from the green where he finished his game of bowls before heading out to defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588.
