Jerico Row

The location of JERICO ROW (JERICHO ROW) remains a mystery to many present day residents of Helston.

Located below Penhellis House towards St John`s, it`s whereabouts has been long forgotten due to the entrance to it`s cottages being blocked in later years by the building of a bungalow across the entrance.

Jerico Row is now derelict. During Flora Day 2009 I was able to photograph the cottages from the grounds of Penhellis House.

It shows the view from Penventon Hill across lower St John’s to St Michael’s Church. What is very distinctive are the arches below the Masonic Hall and JERICO ROW.
