Eagle House, Castle Street, Launceston, Cornwall. 1958

General view of the frontage and part of the street, showing the eagles on the gateposts. A grand Georgian mansion, the house was built in 1764 for Coryndon Carpenter, the constable of Launceston Castle, using ten thousand pounds he had won in a government lottery. After his death it was briefly a very comfortable prison for naval officers captured in the Napoleonic Wars. The Cornish poet Charles Causley mentions the eagles in one of his poems. The house has been a hotel since the 1960s. Photographer: Charles Woolf
