About the Launceston Circuit

Launceston, the ancient capital and gateway to Cornwall sits astride the A30 in the agricultural heart of the Westcountry being one mile from the Devon and Cornwall border.
 
It is an area of considerable beauty and charm with easy access to both the North and South Coasts of the peninsular as well as to the cities of Exeter, Plymouth and Truro.
 
Dating back to Celtic times Launceston is the only walled town in Cornwall and is steeped in history being dominated by its Castle built by Brian de Bretagne the first Norman Earl of Cornwall in the 11th Century.
 
The Launceston Area Methodist Circuit surrounds the town and lies over the Devon Border and the edge of Bodmin Moor. The strong tradition of Methodism in Cornwall and the Westcountry is represented by the LAMC circuit, which has 22 churches and a good membership of 700 people who worship and enjoy fellowship as Christians together.
 
As well as enjoying local history, historians and tourists interested in the life and mission of John Wesley can visit the Wesley Cottage at Trewint which became a place of rest and mission for Wesley and his colleagues in 1743.
