Launceston, locally or, is a town, ancient borough, and civil parish in east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.Dunheved was the Southwestern Brittonic name for the town in the West Saxon period.Launceston is centred one mile west of the River Tamar, which constitutes almost the entire border between the Cornish peninsular and Devon, at its middle stage. Its gradients are generally steep particularly at a sharp south-western knoll topped by Launceston Castle. The town centre is bypassed so no longer physically a main thoroughfare yet remaining figuratively the "gateway to Cornwall", having one of two dual carriageways into the county since the completion of the alternative main point of entry at Saltash over the Tamar Bridge in 1962. Launceston Steam Railway narrow-gauge heritage railway runs for aesthetic and industrial heritage purposes along a short rural route.Two civil parishes serve the town and its outskirts, of which the central more built-up administrative unit housed 8,952 residents at the 2011 census.Three electoral wards include reference to the town, their total population, from 2011 census data, being 11,837 and two ecclesiastical parishes serve the former single parish, with three churches and a large swathe of land to the north and west part of the area.
