My family is related to John Williams. I visited both the church and Gwennap Pit recently and was disappointed to find the family graves unmarked. I would like to put a small dedication sign up where him and his family were buried, any information would be welcome appreciated. I love anything to do with mining.

Never heard of this and I’m a Methodist! But I do know of John Wesley!


I’ve only been to Cornwall once and have never heard of this before! It’s amazing that it still appears to look as it would at the time. I was christened as a Methodist and attended the Sunday School until my friend and I took over teaching the 8 year olds when we were 14.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
