On TV, someone mentioned Caradoc Hill in Shropshire. My curiosity made me wonder where the name of the mission came from!
I thought it sounded a bit Welsh and on checking there is a legendary Caradoc who was an ancester of the kings of Gwent. Then of course, the hill in Shropshire.
Eventually, i found out there were no romantic reasons! The mission started out at 10 Caradoc Road.
So, that still left me wondering about why Caradoc!!!
As Caradoc Road is surrounded by streets named after composers, I googled composers and found Welsh composer Caradog Roberts! So my best guess is that Caradoc is maybe an alternative spelling.
So, if I'm right, the answer to the original question is thst Caradoc mission was called after s Welsh conposer!
No hills or kingly ancestors were injured in the course of this investigation!
