Kirkstall Forge Methodist Chapel - Bramwell (1794)

While Mr Bramwell was attending the district meeting in Leeds, he accompanied Mr John Nelson, one evening, to Kirkstall Forge, and preached out of doors to a large and attentive congregation. When the service was closed, a great part of the company retired into the chapel to hold a watch-night. The Spirit of God was poured out, and many were awakened. While at prayer, the next morning, a female in the family where he lodged, who had a great aversion against being converted in a noisy meeting, felt the power of God descend upon her; but endeavoring to stifle her convictions, she fell down upon the floor, and remained four hours in a state of apparent insensibility, so that many said she was dead. However, on giving up her own will, and yielding to be saved in God's way, she revived and was made happy.

From, ‘Memoir of the Life and Ministry of William Bramwell, by James Sigston, published in 1836, p78-9.
