SX3384 : Launceston Town Square

taken 11 years ago, near to Launceston, Cornwall, Great Britain

Launceston Town Square
Launceston Town Square
This is potentially a wonderful centre to the town. Many of the buildings surrounding the square have a long history. The monument at the centre is an ornate war memorial. It could be a very pleasant place to be on a bright winter's day such as this but it is completely ruined by the cars. The pavements are narrow and to step off them is to risk conflict with cars nosing around the square looking for a parking space, reversing out of one or expecting to travel through unhindered. There is nowhere to sit and relax, even the steps of the war memorial are fenced off. All in all tremendously disappointing and a complete waste of this wonderful place.
