Billy Bray’s ‘Three Eyes’ Kerley Downs Chapel, Baldhu

Sole remaining example of three chapels built by Billy Bray (1794–1868), a renowned Cornish tin miner and local preacher, for 43 years, in the ‘Bible Christian’ Methodist denomination.

Now maintained as a memorial to Billy Bray, with several services held throughout the year (see www.billybray.org.uk for details). The chapel contains pictures, information and memorabilia of The King's Son (Bray's 'title' adopted for FW Bourne's biography, first published in 1871).
