- "On October 9th, at SKEYTON, a beautiful little chapel, 28 feet
by 17, was opened by the Rev. Messrs. A.E. Farrar and Titus Close;
and on the following Sunday, by the Rev. Messrs. William Kelk and
Isaac Denison. The whole expense of the erection is £100;
towards which about £30 was subscribed and collected. This
village was visited by the Preachers in 1784, and at intervals
ever since. About four years ago, a hired room was fitted up for
the accommodation of the people. It was well attended, and sinners
brought to God in it. Having now entered a place, superior in every
respect, we hope that greater things will be effected in the name
of the Lord."
