    Not Helston, sorry.
  • James Trickey 7y

    Northern England? (I said Helston because I saw that you had been in the same area as me from your photostream)
  • Tim Green 7y

    No, you were closer with Helston !
  • Lapsus Kalamari 7y

  • Tim Green 7y

    ooh no, it's in Cornwall ... but not in Helston !
  • James Trickey 7y

    Penryn? (is that the right area of the county?)
  • Tim Green 7y

    Certainly is the right area, and closer still ....
    Main mark for the town
    Bonus mark for the street
    Another bonus for identifying what was said on the plaque that I have smudged out.

    Falmouth it is. So the main point goes to you.

    For the 'street' name we are looking for what Falmouth was called before it was called Falmouth.

    And the purpose of the building ?!
  • James Trickey 7y

    Something like Pennycomequick, Smithick Hill, Falmouth, TR11?
  • Tim Green 7y

    Falmouth was indeed alternatively known as Pennycomequick and Smithick; this is Smithick Hill. Bonus number one to you.
  • James Trickey 7y

    Formerly Smithick school?
  • Tim Green 7y

    Not a school
  • James Trickey 7y

    Village/Town hall?
  • Drew 7y

    Wasn't this a Synagogue?
  • Tim Green 7y

    Yes, the old Falmouth Synagogue, built 1806.
  • John D Durrant 7y

    Actually this is in Gylling Street . Smethick Hill is back down the road about 200 meters. It was used as a painting and sculpture studio for many years until the owners moved to southern Italy.
  • Tim Green 7y

    Summerhill Studio, indeed.

    According to the 25in to the mile map it is indeed in Gyllyng Street - but only just; it's right at the top of Smithick Hill. I've always thought of it as being in Smithick Hill as that's the way I get to it. But you are right.
