Synopsis

In this unique and charming portrait of the Cornish market town of Launceston, a delightful selection of photographs from yesteryear are interspersed with Joan Rendell's personal recollections. Situated overlooking the Kensey Valley, Launceston boasts an Norman castle and ancient priory as well as beautiful churches and some of the finest Georgian architecture in the region. However, it was as the centre of the surrounding area's agricultural trade that Launceston flourished. At one time it was the county town of Cornwall, with vibrant, thriving markets that drew crowds from miles around. The stunning historic buildings are explored in all their magnificence, while the author's reminiscences paint a colourful picture of Launceston's market customs, traditional shops and a host of delightful characters. Nostalgia with a difference, this book vividly evokes Launceston and Cornwall as they were in a bygone age.
