Helston was snow-bound for several days when hit by severe snow storms in January 1963.
Take a trip back in time and have a look at the snow covered streets and cars 50 years ago!
Looking across at Helston. Little seems to have changed since 1963 apart from the demolition of the Gas Monitor.
This lorry is seen speeding through the snow past St Michael`s Terrace in Meneage Street.
See what happend to it later in Coinagehall Street!
Snowbound cars at the bottom of Coinagehall Street.
I think the cars are a Morris Traveller, Austin A30 Van, Austin Cambridge and Landrover.
Here`s that lorry coming to grief at the traffic lights at the top of Coinagehall Street. It looks like it has slipped backwards and the traffic lights themselves are preventing it going through Wakeham`s shop window!
A deserted Meneage Street.
How often can you sledge down Trengrouse Way?
Royal Navy Married Quarters opposite The Green at Troubridge Road.
Behind `The Willows` HBC Offices in Church Street. Note the Helston Borough Council Lorry

Outside T&T MOTORS with `Hartley Peters` & Jenkins Fish Cafe next door. Notice the old Petrol Pumps!
This garage has now been demolished and is a car sales lot.
Digging out the road up to Meneage Hosptia
A last look across Helston over Grange Road to St Michael`s Church
Sorry but I couldn’t resist humiliating myself with this one!
