Hanham Mount

This historic site is marked with a paved cross and symbolic illumination. A monument (bronze plaque) commemorates that this was where George Whitefield and John Wesley preached to the local mining community from 1739: one of their earliest open-air preaching places.

East from the beacon, a path leads to a replica (dedicated in 1983, refurbished in 1996 and 2007) of the chapel pulpit from the Colliers' School, Kingswood, established by John Wesley and George Whitefield for the miners' children.
