Commemorative plaque in Hopwas, Staffs

Francis Wilson's cottage in Hopwas, Staffs

I recently had a slate plaque fitted to the cottage in Hopwas, near Tamworth, Staffordshire where my Great Grandfather, Francis Wilson, started Methodism 3 months after moving to the village in 1866. When the cottage became too small for the congregation a Chapel was built nearby in 1888. We have just celebrated 125 years and I thought this a great opportunity to record this achievement.
