Lawrence House Measuring Sticks

Whilst on holiday wandered into the Lawrence House Museum in Launceston. It's stuffed full of artefacts from Medieval times through to today. I spied a corner full of measuring instruments. I liked the pole for measuring criminals

and the yardstick.

Lots of old maps hung on the walls too: the usual bevy of land ownership plans and parish boundaries. Interesting none-the-less.
