An exhibition designed to encourage us to look more closely at our surroundings in the centre of Launceston, to admire some of the fascinating details and be shocked at some signs of neglect and dilapidation. It includes a streetscape, photographs of most of the buildings in the centre, together with detailed information about some of the more remarkable buildings and the people who have occupied them over the centuries.

Do you know where ‘Hanging Judge Jeffries’ is believed to have stayed?

Or how a lottery win led to the building of Eagle House?
