Liskeard Cornwall.
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. Cleer.
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.
The Church (open daily) is very fine and the second largest in the county. The granite tower, 85 feet in height, was completed in 1903. There are eight bells, dating from 1735 to 1819. The pulpit—a good piece of carving—bears the date 1636.

Liskeard Main Line Railway Station on the southern edge of town is the northern terminus of the picturesque Looe Valley Line.

 
St.Keyne the village is between Liskeard and Looe, and is one of the stops on the Looe rail line. it is famous for its well and the well water is used for baptisms in the parish church.
 
St.Neot near Liskeard has a Glorious church with wonderful stained glass windows. Visitors may notice a branch at the top of the tower. Each Oak Apple Day the church wardens go to the roof of the tower to take down last year's oak branch and haul up a new one. The custom is to commemorate that St Neot villagers were Royalists during be Civil War and once children wore an oak leaf on the morning of May 29 and a fox glove in the afternoon. Those who didn’t suffered the penalty of being chased with stinging nettles. There is a holy well close to the river, with water  said to have healing powers.
