Church of the English Martyrs and attached walls and steps, St Stephen's Hill, Launceston - Cornwall (UA)

Small Roman Catholic parish church designed by Arthur Langdon in a blend of Byzantine and Romanesque styles. It was built in 1911 and constructed of dressed stones including Slate stone and Polyphant stone, to give a polychrome effect. The Polyphant stone masonry is now decaying badly. The roofs now need urgent repair as they are leaking.
