Redding is a village within the Falkirk council area in Central Scotland. The village is 2.1 miles southeast of Falkirk, 1.9 miles south-southwest of Grangemouth and 1 mile west of Polmont. At the time of the 2001 census, Redding had a population of 1,954 residents. On a hill beyond Redding is a stone, called Wallace's stone, marking out the spot from which Sir William Wallace, after his quarrel with Sir John Stuart, one of the Scottish chiefs, is said to have viewed the Battle of Falkirk, from which he had been compelled to retire, to have witnessed the defeat of the Scottish army. In 1923, the small mining community of Redding was the scene of one of the worst disasters in the history of the Scottish coalfield, which claimed the lives of 40 men. At 5.00am on Tuesday 25 September 1923 an inrush of water flooded the pit. The Sir William Wallace Lodge of the Grand Lodge of Scotland Free Colliers still march every year on the first Saturday in August in memory of the men who lost their lives in the disaster.

David Noel Redding was an English rock musician, best known as the bass player and occasional lead singer for the Jimi Hendrix Experience and guitarist/singer for Fat Mattress. Following his departure from the Experience in 1969 and split of Fat Mattress in 1970, Redding formed the short lived Road in the United States who released one eponymous album before he re-located to Clonakilty, Ireland, in 1972. There he formed the Noel Redding Band with former Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell with whom he released two albums. Although by the 1980s Redding had removed himself from the music business, he would perform around his new hometown with wife Carol Appleby. Redding was born at Royal Victoria Hospital in Folkestone, Kent to Bromley-born Margaret and Horace Albert Redding, he grew up on Cliff Road, where his mother ran a guest house, with his mother, his Swedish-born grandmother, brother Anthony and sister Vicki. He attended Harvey Grammar School in Folkestone. At age nine, he played violin at school and mandolin and guitar.
His first public appearances were at the Hythe Youth Club at his school. His first local bands, in which he played lead guitar, were: The Strangers: with John "Andy" Andrews The Lonely Ones: 1961 - John Andrews, Bob Hiscocks, Mick Wibley, Pete Kircher; the Lonely Ones made a pressed EP at the Hayton Manor Studio in Stanford, Kent, in 1963, with Derek Knight on vocals, Trevor Sutton on drums, Noel Redding on lead guitar and John Andrews on bass. First recordings: "Some Other Guy"; the Loving Kind: 1966 with Pete Carter. At 17 Redding went professional and toured clubs in Scotland and Germany with Neil Landon and the Burnettes and The Loving Kind. In addition, The Lonely Ones reunited in September 1964, Redding remained with them a year before taking his leave. Redding switched from guitar to bass on joining the Jimi Hendrix Experience, he was the first person to join the Experience. With the band, he helped create the three landmark albums Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, Electric Ladyland, as well as performing in some of Hendrix's most celebrated concerts.
His playing style was distinguished by the use of a pick, a mid-range "trebly" sound, in years the use of fuzz and distortion effects through overdriven Sunn amps. His role in the band was that of a time-keeper; this was evident in the Experience's version of "Come On" and "Drivin' South" from the BBC Sessions. He would lay down a bass groove over which Hendrix and drummer Mitch Mitchell would loosely play. Redding wrote and sang lead on two album tracks, "Little Miss Strange" and "She's So Fine." He played the bass line on "Red House" using the bass strings on a normal six-string guitar. In 1968, Redding formed the group Fat Mattress with Neil Landon, on vocals; the band included Jim Leverton on bass and keyboards and Eric Dillon on drums. Redding played guitar and vocals, a key part of the Fat Mattress sound was the vocal harmonies between him and Leverton; the band toured in support of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, requiring Redding to play two full sets each night. He left Fat Mattress after only one album with them, though some of his compositions would appear on their second album.
Hendrix's manager, Michael Jeffery, attempted to reunite the Jimi Hendrix Experience months after the Woodstock event. The three were interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine. Redding soon went on to other projects. While living in Los Angeles he formed Road, a three-piece in the same psychedelic hard rock vein as the Experience, with Rod Richards on guitar and Les Sampson on drums, Redding himself switching back to bass, they released one album, with the three members taking turns on lead vocals. Noel Redding moved to Ireland in 1972, he formed The Noel Redding Band with Eric Bell from Thin Lizzy, Dave Clarke, Les Sampson, Robbie Walsh. Despite the band's name, Redding shared songwriting and lead vocal duties with Clarke, they released two albums for RCA, three tours of the Netherlands, two tours of England, one tour of Ireland, a 10-week tour in the US. The band dissolved after a dispute with their management company. Tracks recorded for a third unreleased album were released as The Missing Album on Mouse Records.
In his book Are You Experienced?, co-authored with his long term wife Carol Appleby, he spoke about his disappointment in his being cut off from the profits of the continued sale of the Hendrix recordings. He signed away his royalties in 1974 and in 1980 sold the bass guitar he used with the Experience to a collector. Redding had received $100,000 as a one-off payment after he had been told that there would be no more releases of Jimi Hendrix Experience material; this was before the advent of DVDs. In 1990, Redding and Appleby were involved in a car crash returning home from a concert in Glounthaune. Appleby was left brain dead by the accident, with Redding stating that "she was in intensive care on life support and after four days I had to make the terrible decision of shutting down the machine", they had been together for seventeen years and, just two days prior to the accident, Appleby had finished helping Redding co-write his autobiography. In 1997, Fender produced the Noel Redding Signature Jazz bass in a signed limited edition of 1000.
Redding the City of Redding, is the county seat of Shasta County, California, in the northern part of the state. It lies along the Sacramento River, 162 miles north of Sacramento, 120 miles south of California's northern border, shared with the state of Oregon. Interstate 5 bisects the entire city, from the south to north before it approaches Shasta Lake, located 15 miles to the north; the 2010 population was 89,861. Redding is the largest city in the Shasta Cascade region, it is the sixth-largest city in the Sacramento Valley, behind Sacramento, Elk Grove, Roseville and Chico. During the gold rush, the area that now comprises Redding was called Poverty Flats. In 1868 the first land agent for the Central Pacific Railroad, a former Sacramento politician named Benjamin Bernard Redding, bought property in Poverty Flats on behalf of the railroad so that it could build a northern terminus there. In the process of building the terminus, the railroad built a town in the same area, which they named Redding in honor of Benjamin Redding.
In 1874 there was a dispute over the name by local legislators and it was changed for a time to Reading, in order to honor Pierson B. Reading, who founded the community of Shasta, but the name was changed back to Redding by 1880, it has been called Redding since. Before European settlers came to the area, it was inhabited by a tribe of Native Americans called the Wintu. At their height, the Wintu had as many as 239 villages in the Shasta County area. Although Europeans had been to California as early as 1542, when Juan Cabrillo sailed to what is now the San Diego Bay, the indigenous Indians were the only inhabitants of far Northern California region until Russian fur trappers came through the area in 1815; the first European settlement in the area was established in 1844 by Pierson B. Reading, an early California pioneer who received a Rancho Buena Ventura Mexican land grant for 26,632 acres, now covered by Redding and Cottonwood, California. At the time, it was the northernmost nonnative settlement in California.
During the gold rush, the area, now Redding was called Poverty Flats. In 1868 the first land agent for the Central Pacific Railroad, a former Sacramento politician named Benjamin Bernard Redding, bought property in Poverty Flats on behalf of the railroad for a northern terminus. In the process of building the terminus, the railroad built the town of Redding, incorporated on October 4, 1887. In the early twentieth century the town's economic growth was spurred by the significant copper and iron mineral extraction industry nearby. However, the mining industry declined, causing the economy and population to falter by 1920, it recovered in the thirties as the economy boomed due to the construction of Shasta Dam to the northwest. The building of the dam, completed in 1945, caused Redding's population to nearly double spurring the growth and development of other towns in the area. Redding continued to grow in the 1950es due to the region's growing lumber industry and tourism brought about by the newly completed dam.
The constructions of Whiskeytown and Keswick dams helped boost the economy by bringing new workers to the area. Highway Interstate 5 was built during the sixties and seventies, which added to development and tourism in the region. Growth in Redding during the'60s and'70s was caused by annexation of an area east of the Sacramento River made up of the unincorporated community of Enterprise. Enterprise residents voted to support the annexation to acquire less expensive electricity via Redding's municipal utility, which receives power from the dam. During the 1970s, the lumber industry suffered from decline. Lumber mills in the area closed down and impacted the Redding area. Things picked up, due to a retail and housing boom in the late-1980s that continued until the mid-1990s. In 2017, the city adopted a new flag after holding a redesign contest. In late July 2018, the Carr Fire in Shasta county impacted the Redding area with the destruction of at least 1100 buildings, with several thousand more threatened, 38,000 people instructed to evacuate and 6 deaths.
Redding is located at 40°34′36″N 122°22′13″W. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 61.2 square miles. 59.6 square miles of it is land, 1.5 square miles of it is beneath water. Redding is located at the northwestern end of the Central Valley, which transitions into the Cascade foothills; the city is surrounded by mountains to the north and west and fertile farm land to the south. Outermost parts of the city are part of the Cascade foothills, whereas southern and central areas are in the Sacramento Valley; the elevation in Redding is 495 feet on average, whereas anywhere to the north, east, or west of downtown ranges between 550 feet and 800 feet feet. Southern portions range between 500 feet; the Shasta Dam on the Sacramento River provides a considerable level of flood protection for Redding. The dam is capable of controlling flows up to 79,000 cubic feet per second; the flow rate exceeded this threshold in both 1970 and 1974. Soils in and around town are composed of clay or gravelly loam texture, with red or brown mineral horizons.

Redding is a town in Fairfield County, United States. The population was 9,158 at the 2010 census. At the time colonials began receiving grants for land within the boundaries of present-day Redding, Native American trails crossed through portions of the area, including the Berkshire Path running north-south. In 1639, Roger Ludlow purchased land from local Native Americans to establish Fairfield, in 1668 Fairfield purchased another tract of land called Northfield, which comprised land, now part of Redding. For settlement purposes, Fairfield authorities divided the newly available land into parcels dubbed "long lots" at the time, which north-south measured no more than a third of a mile wide but extended east-west as long as 15 miles. North of the long lots was a similar-sized parcel of land known as The Oblong. There are varying accounts as to the first colonial landholder in the Redding area. Nathan Gold, a Fairfield man who would serve as deputy governor of Connecticut from 1708 to 1723, received a land grant for 800 acres in 1681.
The first colonials to settle in the area of present-day Redding lived near a Native American village led by Chickens Warrups, whose name is included on multiple land deeds secured by settlers throughout the area. According to Fairfield County and state records from the time Redding was formed, the original name of the town was Reading, after the town in Berkshire, England. More however, town history attributes the name to John Read, an early major landholder, a prominent lawyer in Boston as well as a former Congregationalist preacher who converted to Anglicanism. Read helped in demarcating the boundaries of the town and in getting it recognized as a parish in 1729. In 1767, soon after incorporation, the name was changed to its current spelling of Redding to better reflect its pronunciation. In 1809, Congress granted Redding its first U. S. Post Office, which made official in 1844 the spelling of the town's name. In the years preceding the Declaration of Independence, tensions escalated in Redding between Tory loyalists and larger numbers of those supporting the resolutions of the Continental Congress, with some Tories fleeing to escape retribution.
Some 100 Redding men volunteered to serve under Captain Zalmon Read in a company of the new 5th Connecticut Regiment, which participated in the siege of Quebec's Fort Saint-Jean during the autumn of 1775 before the volunteers' terms of service expired in late November. In 1777, the Continental Congress created a new Continental Army with enlistments lasting three years; the 5th Connecticut Regiment was reformed, enlisting some men from Redding, assigned to guard military stores in Danbury, Connecticut. Getting word of the depot, the British dispatched a force of some 2,000 soldiers to destroy the stores, landing April 26 at present-day Westport and undertaking a 23-mile march north; the column halted on Redding Ridge for a two-hour respite, with many residents having fled to a wooded, rocky area dubbed the Devil's Den. The British column resumed its march to Danbury where soldiers destroyed the supplies skirmished Continental Army and militia forces in Ridgefield while on the return march south.
For the winter of 1778-79, General George Washington decided to split the Continental Army into three divisions encircling New York City, where British General Sir Henry Clinton had taken up winter quarters. Major General Israel Putnam chose Redding as the winter encampment quarters for some 3,000 regulars and militia under his command, at the site of the present-day Putnam Memorial State Park and nearby areas; the Redding encampment allowed Putnam's soldiers to guard the replenished supply depot in Danbury and support any operations along Long Island Sound and the Hudson River Valley. Some of the men were veterans of the winter encampment at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania the previous winter. Soldiers at the Redding camp endured supply shortages, cold temperatures and significant snow, with some historians dubbing the encampment "Connecticut's Valley Forge." Construction began in 1850 on the Danbury and Norwalk Railroad, which linked those two cities following a 23-mile route along the Norwalk River valley that passed through Redding.
Regular steam-engine service commenced March 1, 1852. In 1876, after A. N. Fillow began extracting mica in the Branchville section of Redding, two Yale University mineralogists noted the presence of undiscovered minerals lodged in pegmatite there and furnished funds to expand the operation. Historians say the mine produced between seven and nine minerals until unknown, including one, named reddingite. Over time, the mine would produce quantities of quartz, mica, beryl and columbite. There is a garnet mine in West Redding. In 1834, Gilbert & Bennett Co. purchased the site of a former comb mill alongside the Norwalk River in the Georgetown section of Redding, began producing wire mesh cloth for varying uses, in time to include sieves and window screens. In 1863, Gilbert & Bennett built a facility at the site for drawing metal wire. During World War I, the U. S. military adapted the company's products for gas masks and trench liners. A private equity group purchased the company in 1985, began relocating operations elsewhere.
In 1987, the Gilbert & Bennett site was included as part of the Georgetown Historic District listing on the National Register of Histori
Redding Municipal Airport
Redding Municipal Airport is 6 miles southeast of Redding in Shasta County, California. It is one of two airports in Redding, along with Benton Airpark. In addition to general aviation, the airport has scheduled passenger flights to and from San Francisco on United Express. In 1942 the site of Redding Army Air Field was acquired by the United States Army Corps of Engineers for the United States Army Air Forces. Redding AAF was a sub-base for Chico AAF and garrisoned by the 433d Army Air Force Base Unit, it was under IV Fighter Command at Hamiltion AAF. The mission of Redding Army Air Field was advanced flight training of new airmen prior to their deployment overseas into the combat zones of the Pacific, Mediterranean or European Theaters; the USAAF 399th Fighter Squadron, 369th Fighter Group operated P-39 Airacobras from the airfield for that mission. On 1 November 1944 control of Redding AAF was transferred from the Fourth Air Force to the Sacramento Area Command of the Army Air Forces’ Air Technical Service Command headquartered at McClellan Field near Sacramento.
The host unit was redesignated as the 4191st Army Air Force Base Unit. The mission was changed from training air crews to that of a refueling and maintenance facility for transient aircraft. Redding AAF was sporadically used by the Army Air Forces’ Air Transport Command as a refueling and service stop. On 19 December 1945 the military declared Redding AAF excess and on 18 November 1946 it was turned over to the city for a civil airfield. Final transfer was in 1949; the City of Redding has started a major commercial development. Hughes Airwest flew Douglas DC-9-10s and McDonnell Douglas DC-9-30s to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle. Frontier Boeing 737-200s flew to Denver via Sacramento. United Airlines flew 737s nonstop and direct to San Francisco for several years starting in 1983. Pacific Express BAC One-Elevens flew nonstop to San Francisco and on to Los Angeles and to Portland. In addition, American Eagle turboprops operating for American Airlines flew nonstop to San Jose, San Francisco, Eureka/Arcata, Klamath Falls until late 1993.
On July 17, 2008 President George W. Bush and staff landed at Redding in Air Force One to allow the president to see the damage done by wildfires. Redding Municipal Airport covers 1,584 acres and has two asphalt runways: 16/34, 7,003 x 150 ft and 12/30, 5,067 x 150 ft. In 12 months through April 2012 the airport had 104,674 aircraft operations, average 287 per day: 46% local general aviation, 17% transient general aviation, 36% air taxi, <1% scheduled commercial and <1% military. 222 aircraft are based at this airport: 27 multi-engine, 15 helicopter and 5 jet. The City of Redding's remodel and expansion of the Terminal Building is complete, as of November 11, 2014, when the Grand Opening took place; the project cost $9.8 million with the majority of funds coming from the FAA Airport Improvement Program. The Terminal Building was expanded from 20,000 sq. ft. to 30,000 sq. ft. The secure passenger holding area increased its holding capacity from 70 passengers to over 200 passengers; the holding area now has restrooms.
