Port View, Saltash
"Port View was laid out as a gated community of villas set in their own grounds and attracted wealthy merchants, businessmen and retired military officers. In addition to the houses the mini estate included ... a Roman Catholic Franciscan Friary converted in the same year from an earlier house called Vinelands. Polsue commented in 1872 that ‘many neat and tasteful villas have been built on the most interesting and commanding sites’." From LinkExternal link The friary, now apartments called Friary Court is the large building left of centre. The western end of the Tamar road bridge peeps over the hill.
