It’s Murdoch Day in Redruth when the whole town turns out to celebrate William Murdoch, the talented mine engineer and inventor who lived in Redruth. His house was the first in the UK to be lit by gas lighting in 1792. He also built a steam-powered ‘car’ that he tested on the town roads.

And for your delectation……
