Stainland (1824)

"A revival it seems was experienced in Stainland and the neighbourhood, about 1824, the Rev. T. Preston being the superintendent of the Sowerby-Bridge circuit. While there was a blessed unity and love among the members of society, there was also a spirit of agonizing prayer for the out-pouring of the Holy Ghost, and the society steadily progressed in numbers;in fact, the zeal engendered by the revival stimulated the exertions of the people for several years, and at the present time there are connected with Stainland no less than seven classes, eight local preachers, and upwards of a hundred members of society."
