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

Designed by Robert Adam and built in 1783, it is believed the arch was built as a triumphal arch and eye-catcher to be viewed from Saltram House. The arch was advertised for sale in 2014, which included approximately two acres of associated woodland. There has been no further interest in the arch and as of 2018 it is unclear if the arch was successfully sold.
