Sacriston (1878)

Seasons of power have been experienced at Sacriston. One such took place in the closing seventies, when William Welford conducted services for three weeks, walking the four miles from Durham and back each day. The final cricket match of the season with Kimblesworth, concluding with a dinner in the Blue Bell Inn, was abandoned, because, as the Sacriston secretary wrote to the Kimblesworth Club, "the Ranters have had a revival, and nearly all our chaps have got converted and will not play."
