Ravenfield Common Primitive Methodists (1820)

"Sunday, June 4th. I (Jeremiah Gilbert) attended a camp-meeting on Ravensfield Common. The scene was very interesting; different companies were wrestling with God in mighty prayer; tears were flowing from many eyes, and sinners were crying for mercy, and receiving salvation at the hands of Jesus. A boy about twelve years of age was made happy, and nearly at the same time, a young woman of about fifteen; and near them stood trembling an old man, with hair as white as wool, and crying to God for mercy. The power of God was gloriously displayed at this camp-meeting”
