The Wychwoods Local History Society

October 13th Evening Talk

The Wychwoods Local History Society is pleased to confirm that our October talk will be held in Milton village hall at 7.30pm. Our speaker is David Young on the subject of Primitive Methodism. As always, entrance is free to members and £3 for guests.

The Primitive Methodists established a firm foothold in the Wychwoods area from the 1830s onwards, their main local chapel being built in Milton in 1834, followed by the new chapel of 1860, still standing in The Square. In 1851 their regular weekly attendance was reported to be 110 persons. For nearly 100 years they were a significant feature of life in our area; there were also Primitive Methodist Chapels locally in Lyneham, Fifield, Chilson, Churchill, Burford, Charlbury and Chipping Norton.

David Young will chart the history and character of this movement from its origins in 1807 to around 1860.

We hope you can join us!
