Redruth Trail 1 - The Town Trail
Discover the stories locked up in the impressive architecture throughout the trail covering an impressive array of heritage buildings. The trail is mainly walked on pavements, and does have a number of steep hills. To the north of the town centre, you will see the new archive centre for Cornwall, Kresen Kernow on the former site of the Redruth Brewery Company.
Continue on the trail to Redruth’s oldest church St Euny. Christian worship probably began here in about 600 AD. The trail then turns back on itself leading you back to Redruth where you can stop for lunch in one of the pubs, numerous cafes, or purchase a traditional pasty from the local bakeries.
