Beneath this notice is the single-barred window of a prison cell under the Keep of Launceston castle SX3384 : Doomsdale Dungeon: Prison for a Saint. It was here that the Catholic priest, Cuthbert Mayne, a convert from the Anglican Church, was imprisoned for six months after his arrest at SW9246 : The Manor House, Golden - scene of St Cuthbert's arrest before being hung drawn and quartered in Launceston Square. He was declared to be a saint in 1970. Other elements in his sad story can be seen at: SW8765 : The Manor House, St Mawgan (Lanherne) and its history and SW8865 : The Vale of Lanherne: St Cuthbert’s route to St Mawgan and SS5937 : Shirwell: a Saxon settlement and the birthplace of a saint and martyr.
