PEVERELL Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. The estate was later acquired by the Peverell family of Ermington in Devon, after which it became known as "Weston Peverell" to distinguish it from other similarly named places.

Two of the main roads are named Peverell Park Road and Weston Park Road. The area now consists mostly of Edwardian terraced houses. Peverell borders Central Park, often known as "the green lung" of Plymouth which is a very popular recreational area for, and is home to Plymouth Life Centre and Plymouth Argyle's Home Park football stadium.

Primary schooling is provided by Montpelier and Hyde Park Primary School (whilst the Hyde Park area offers a popular shopping parade. Mutley Plain and Plymouth Station are considered to be within walking distance, by most. The Hyde Park Pub, on the periphery of Peverell, is a popular gastro/local pub.

Peverell is seen by residents as a safe solid and central area with a good quality housing stock and few social problems.

The terms on which the land was sold for development at the turn of the twentieth century stipulated that no licensed premises (pubs), should be built on the land, as the seller was a strict abstainer .This has resulted in the district having a residential atmosphere.
