EFFORD Efford stands on high ground above the Laira estuary of the River Plym and variously offers views over long distances: to the north across Dartmoor, to the east and south-east across the South Hams of Devon. The predominance of the housing stock, dates from the early post war period, albeit, several modern developments. Historically the area around Efford had military importance. Efford Fort was one of the ring of Victorian Palmerston's Follies built to provide defence from risk of French invasion. The area was also heavily occupied by the American army during the preparations for D-Day. This is remembered by the naming of a part of Efford, as Little America. Streets there were given names such as California Gardens, Oregon Way etc. These names were retained when the current houses, were built in the 1970s.

Ease of access is given to the A38, via The Embankment and Delamere Road, to the south and north, whilst Plymouth City Centre is approximately 3 miles away. High View School is a contemporary primary school, whilst 11 - 18 year olds, can usually attend Lipson Vale Community College.
