The Young Men’s Bible Class at Redruth Wesleyan Chapel was a very important part of life in the town before World War One. Hundreds of young men attended weekly and after war broke out in 1914, at least 150 signed up.
The well-known local historian, the late Paddy Bradley of Redruth, collected many photographs and albums about the Bible Class. This photo above from his collection has been tinted by the Cornish Studies Library. For another picture of one of the group’s annual outings, click here.
