Location

Launceston, gateway to Cornwall is a former capital of Cornwall. Pronounced as Lanson or Launson by the Cornish, the name of the town originates in the Celtic period - known as Lanstephan - meaning 'Church (lands) of St Stephen'. It became Dunheved under the Saxons. The town is overlooked by its Norman castle - built by Brian of Brittany in the 11th Century and is the only walled town in Cornwall.
