Boringdon Arch, Plymbridge Road, Plymouth - Plymouth, City of (UA)

Designed by Robert Adam and built in 1783, built as a triumphal arch and eye-catcher to be viewed from Saltram House. Now within a golf course. It was advertised for sale in 2014 but was not sold, and remains in a state of slow decay. There is scope for limited reuse of the former lodges (now roofless ruins) behind the arch flank walls to be reused for beneficial purposes, but access remains a constraint.
