Epworth England.. Home of the Wesleys Jul 08, 2017
Epworth is a lovely market town in North Lincolnshire England. The town is most famous as the birthplace of John and Charles Wesley, the founders of Methodism, the world church. The town is well marked out to take the Wesley trail around the places of interest. I arrived in Epworth by bus, the bus driver advised me to get off the bus at the Rectory,then continue down Albion Hill to see most of the sites, in town near the White Bear pub catch the bus to return to Doncaster.---The Old Rectory is in Rectory street,is the place John and Charles Wesley were born to Samuel and Susanna Wesley. John was born 17th June 1703, and Charles was born 18th Dec 1707. John died in London on 2nd March 1791. The house can be visited. There is a statue of John Wesley on Albion Hill.-- St.Andrews church is from the 12th century. Samuel Wesley was rector between 1695 and 1735, he is buried in a grave near the church south porch. John preached from his fathers tomb and at the Epworth market cross.--- Wesley Memorial Methodist Church in High Street , was built in 1889 as a national memorial to John and Charles, the church is open for visits.----The town is a charming place with shops,pubs and tearooms.--- If you are using public transport access is from Scunthorpe by bus 399, 2 hourly.or from Doncaster bus 291 and 399 each 2 hourly. [ see traveline bus ]. Accommodation is available in Epworth.
