The Angel Hotel, Coinagehall Street, Helston, about 1980. The Angel Hotel was built in the 16th century as a town house for the Godolphin family, whose main residence was Godolphin House, near Breage. Around the year 1700, the building's use changed to an inn and tavern and by the 1800s it had become the main coaching and posting house in Helston. This photograph was selected for Portrait of Helston at Helston Library in 1981.
