Tucked Away in the 1960s
This 1960s/70s accommodation is a gem hidden away from the main road in Launceston. The area is made up of various 1960s/70s accommodation buildings which were built over older Victorian mansions as the need for accommodation on a larger scale effected Launceston. This set of units has perfect symmetry. The windows and railings are original and really offset the red brick to good effect. Even the writing on the side of this building hasn't really changed since the 60s/70s!
