The Redruth Short Circular takes you through the rich history of the town and countryside, passing Murdoch House where the Engineer William Murdoch discovered gas lighting, then walking up Fore Street you’ll pass the town clock that’s been in place since the 1700’s, along Green Lane, the Plan an Gwarry and onto Church Lane that takes you up to Wheal Uny Engine Houses. The route brings you along footpaths linking up with Victoria Park and back into town passing St Andrews Church and the Pednandrea chimneystack. This walk is around 3.5 miles.
