Victoria Rd

There is a piece of land for sale on this road, about ½ acre with 135 ft. frontage and this is not just any piece of land. One can argue that the view from this land is among the best on the Island of Newfoundland, overlooking the historic town of Trinity, the Trinity Harbour, and Trinity Bay all the way to Bacalieu Tickle.


This land has been used for generations as a potato garden by the family of Clarence Locke and before that the family of Arthur White.


Trinity is one of the earliest communities in Newfoundland to be settled by Europeans, with most settlers having emigrated from the South of England. In the 1500’s, there was a migratory fishery underway and in 1615, Sir Richard Whitbourne held the first Court of Admiralty in Trinity. Trinity Harbour  was described in the 1689 English Pilot as “the best and largest harbour in all the land”.
