ST. MARY MAGDELENE'S CHURCH
Launceston is one of the oldest towns in Cornwall, dominated by the Castle, it also has many other ancient buildings.
The church of St. Mary Magdelene was probably built first time around when the Castle was founded, but of this first church nothing remains. All was rebuilt around 1380 and from this church the tower still survives. The remainder dates to a rebuild by Sir Henry Trecarrel in 1524 and is remarkable for its elaborate carving.
