Murton (1849)

In 1849, there was an extensive revival in Sunderland Circuit. More than five hundred persons were added to the societies, not a few in the colliery villages Hetton, Easington Lane, Middle Rainton, Murton, and other places being rescued from the lowest depths of degradation. Flag Lane and Monkwearmouth societies shared largely in the blessing, and some of the country chapels had to be enlarged to accommodate the congregations.
