Old Maps of Redruth

Historic Maps of Redruth and the local area.

Called 'Flowerpot', presumably, because of the urns on the top of the facade. It could seat nearly 2,000 - making it one of the largest chapels in Britain. Sadly destroyed by fire in 1975. Now the site of a car park.

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.
