by Alan Moore
The town from its earliest beginnings to the end of the 19th century.
Alan has lived locally since he was nine months old. After attending first St. John’s, then Cromwell Road Schools, Alan was a pupil at Redhill Junior Technical School, from where he went to work for the GPO Telephone Service. It was at Redhill Exchange in Clarendon Road that he met his wife-to-be.
The jewellers where the weddings rings were bought, the church where he was married, the Market Hall where the reception was held – all have been demolished, as have many other once familiar buildings. Seeing changes that were causing such common sights to vanish for ever stimulated Alan’s interest in local history, although it was an interest that took a back seat to family life, not developing fully until after Redhill’s transformation was largely complete.
It is never to late to make a start on one’s interests, however, and enthusiastic research since has brought a renewed discovery of Redhill, in addition that has been a enjoyment of meeting many people from the area who have shared with him their colourful and varied reminiscences of times long ago gone by.
