Old Maps of Redruth

Historic Maps of Redruth and the local area.

We lived on Higher Rose Row and could see the back of the church from our back garden. My singing teacher, Donald Broad was the organist there and he organised concerts which were a great introduction to more classical music that widened my knowledge of it. But we left in Coronation Year when I was 14.

Just on left of picture - this drapers was owned by my grandfather & uncle - William E Cocking & W. Kenneth Cocking. 1955 was the year of my birth - just round the corner at Tremorvah in Green Lane. 24 years later (1979) I joined the firm and worked there for 3 happy years.
