Around Launceston

Having a few hours spare, we walked around Launceston, visiting three churches: St Mary Magdalene, St Stephen and St Thomas. None was open with only one offering an explanation.

Our walk took us along part of the planned route down the Tamar valley to Polson bridge which is one of the three major waypoints on our route. Just around the corner from this, close to a less-than-salubrious water treatment plant, was a charming little packhorse bridge over the Kensey river which is not marked on the map.
