Launceston

Launceston is situated near the Devon Border on the A30 and as such has been seen as the gateway to Cornwall. In the past it has been the capital of Cornwall and has the remains of a Norman Castle known as Dunheved overlooking it and commanding the area. Launceston Castle was built by Brian of Bretagne the first Earl of Cornwall in the 11th Century and was the site of a mint and made Launceston the only walled town in Cornwall.

Launceston is a traditional market town with a fine Town square of Georgian buildings. The Church of St Mary Magdalene has an elaborately carved entrance.
