Oreston, formerly a village on the southern bank of the Cattewater, is now a suburb of Plymouth. It is recorded as Horestone on the 1591 Spry Map of Plimmouth. Oreston offers many small, local services. It is home to a small cornershop style shop called "The Quay News," a pub called "The King's Arms," a small dock and free public slipway in "Oreston Quay," and is home to approximately 3,000 residents.
The Oreston Quay, home of the Plym Yacht Club, plays host to many different events including carnivals, concerts and is also a perfect spot for a picnic. The South West Coast Path passes though the village. There is a well-established community with the inclusion of a school. This school has grown and developed over the last few years and has, in some ways, made the area more popular as a place to live. It has suffered none of the disorder and youth gang problems suffered by neighbouring Plymstock, although controversially it is covered by the same police and city council 'Dispersal order' enabling police to break up and drive off groups of two or more persons if they believe that to do so would assist in preventing a breach of the peace.
