South Leverton, Notts

Epworth Circuit had 36 members in Leverton in 1788. The Wesleyans were reported as providing a free Sunday School here in 1800. Mr and Mrs Bacon ‘opened their house’ for preaching from about 1802. Their son Thomas was instrumental in supporting an early Rampton minister by providing accommodation at Stokeham and also took that village’s George Otter to a meeting at Darlton addressed by Thomas Savage. Otter was converted and became a mainstay of the local movement. Bacon later moved back to South Leverton where he died in 1848.
The Methodists bought some land and erected a chapel and school here in 1847. It probably closed in 1971 when the church records cease.
