- LISKEARD is a large country town noteworthy for its cattle fairs, held on the second Monday in each month.
- Though Liskeard is not a holiday resort, many motorists and others passing through are tempted by its attractive appearance to interrupt their journey; and the town is the centre for several interesting short excursions. Five miles to the north is Caradon Hill (1,213 ft.) the site of the formerly prolific South Caradon copper mine and of the
far-famed Cheesewring and the Hurlers. Near Liskeard also are two of the best known of the Cornish Holy Wells—St. Keyne and St.
- The latter stands well up on the Cornish moors.
- A comparison between these moors and Dartmoor may cause a smile, but there is a good deal of similarity, and the bracing crispness of Caradon air deserves
to be as highly esteemed as that of Princetown.
- Liskeard itself is several hundred feet above sea-level, and is noted for its bracing air. From the Castle
Park (475 ft. high) extensive views may be obtained.
