Geocache Description:

Woburn Sands Methodist Church stands on the high street on a plot of land purchased by the church in 1877 for £565 (this is nearly 60 thousand pounds in todays money). 


 

 

The building itself was completed in September 1879 for a cost of around £1500 (around £170 thousands pounds in todays money) 

"and the opening services were arranged for Wednesday 10th September.  The afternoon service was conducted by the Rev. V.H. Cornforth, the chairman of the Bedford and Northampton District, who preached on the healing of the Syro-Phoenician woman's daughter.  In the evening the President of Conference, the Rev. Benjamin Gregory, spoke from the text, "Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh shall He find peace on earth."  St. Luke 18 verse 8.  The chapel was full to capacity and tea was served between the two services.  The celebrations continued until the end of the month"  http://www.mkheritage.co.uk/wsc/docs/methodists.html

I have taken into account the feedback from the first few finders and upped the difficulty rating... who knew smallcacher was so devious!
