What Our Customers In Cornwall Say
Style & Architecture In Launceston
Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall which still features a medieval south gate along with the ruins of a castle. According to the Domesday Book the castle is said to have been owned by Count Robert of Mortain in the 11th century and was known as Castle Terrible, due to the fact that the castle green was used for public executions right up until the 19th century.
Due to the style and architecture around the town we seem to install a lot of classic styled conservatories in launceston that suit a period property. Although we install many Victorian and Edwardian style conservatories in Launceston, we are begining to see a trend of customers requesting a solid conservatory roof rather than the conventional glass or polycarbonate roof.
In order to meet housing demand and population changes, the Government has required that approximately 350 new homes are required to be built in Launceston between now and the year 2030. The development area also identifies an area for development potentially beyond the year 2030, as a future direction of growth. The proposed site will sit between Withoe, Hurdon Road, Landlake Road & Badash) and south of the A30.
Built on two hills either side of the Kensey River valley close to the lowest historic crossing point of the River Tamar, Launceston has occupied an important site both defensively and as the gateway into Cornwall. Its roles as the capital of Cornwall from the Middle Ages until 1835, the home of the Assizes and an important local market have all shaped its development.
The contrasting roles and locational requirements of a market and a defensive castle, as well as the attractions of the valley in between those functions, resulted in the creation of three distinct boroughs – St Stephens; Launceston (Dunheved); and Newport respectively.
During the nineteenth century the town’s importance as a centre for administration and commerce continued to develop, and the arrival of the railway heralded the beginnings of a nascent tourist industry. Despite losing the Assizes to Bodmin in 1835 and the market finally closing in the 1990s Launceston is still an important local centre.
Launceston’s history and geographical location have created a town with a strong, locally distinctive character including:
• The castle and historic town centres that incorporates historic buildings from a variety of periods, and in a range of architectural styles and materials;
• A striking natural setting with dramatic topography and striking vistas;
• A surviving medieval street pattern;
• Carefully planned suburban streets; and
• Characterful areas of historic open space embedded within the urban setting.
