Description |

Some might argue about the relevance of a statue to John Wesley here on the green at Devauden, Monmouthshire. But it is a great spot to browse, and the village of Devauden is rightly quite proud of the role that the village played in the development of Methodism.

The impact of John Wesley's preaching was hugely significant in the setting up of a Methodist chapel in the area. But more so in inspiring hundreds of people as they listened to his sermons on the Wesleyan principles which he so believed in.
