Cricklade - Primitive Methodists (1925)



At Cricklade, a town about the same distance from Wootton Bassett as Malmesbury, the missionaries were more successful. Many sinners were awakened under their earnest preaching, and a society was established. But persecution raged here also; so much so, that for a time the members of the society could seldom go out into the streets on their ordinary business without being pelted with stones!

From, ‘The History of the Primitive Methodist Connexion from its origin, by John Petty, 1860, p182.
