Liskeard

Liskeard is a very old market town and administrative centre, situated in the valley of the River Looe in south east Cornwall. With a railway station on the London to Penzance Great Western Main Line and good road communications, Liskeard is also within easy reach of the south Cornish coastal resorts, with Bodmin Moor to the north. Liskeard owed its early prosperity to the tin mining boom of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, becoming a stannary town, an administrative centre for the tin industry but, like other Cornish towns once dependent on the mining of tin, it has since declined with the declining importance of tin.  A spring in well lane was reputed, in medieval times, to have had healing powers. Notable buildings include Webb's Hotel, the town hall and the church of St Martin. Click on a selected area of the map below to see an enlargement.
