John Wesley

Memorial to John Wesley and his preaching near this site. Probably C18 pedestal
perhaps former sundial, bearing C20 commemorative plaque. Millstone grit

Wesley used to preach near here beside a thorn bush; the 1894 railway was said
to be aligned to avoid the site. Included for historical interest.
