LOWER COMPTON The earliest evidence of man in Compton, is from around 3000 BC. At this time, Neolithic stone axes which have been found in Compton. In 1086 the Doomsday book had an entry for Compton. Compton is mentioned in 1238 as it was on the route to the new Plym Bridge
By 1730 Compton was part of the Culme estate, with a population of around fifty. Hereafter, Compton began to grow. At this stage there were not many buildings, of these The Compton Inn is probably the oldest, with walls up to four feet thick, it was an old farmhouse, then a granary, a tanners and a cobblers shop. One of two other local pubs, The Rising Sun, has a great reputation amongst locals, as a “gastro pub”.
At the turn of the century the bustling little village was still mainly agricultural, with cows, market gardens, sheep, goats, pigs and horses still in evidence. Lower Compton, in particular, still has a very, “village like” ambience. Compton now offers a Tesco Express store, a post office, a DIY store, a bakery, hairdressers and Co-Op store.

In 1896 Compton was incorporated into the Plymouth district. It has always been an extremely popular suburb, neighboring the highly sought areas of Mannamead and Hartley on its South west, west and north western boundaries.

From the early 1900s onward Lower Compton had a school. Rebuilt in the 1970’s, Compton C of E Primary School is considered, by many, to be one of the best in Plymouth.
