George Fox, quaker, preached here to a large crowd, benefiting from the natural acoustics, about 1653. It is said he stood on two blocks of limestone known now as Fox's Pulpit.
Neale Dow, an american temperance promoter, spoke to a crowd of more than 5000 here, 1857. Another report says 14000 people and the local pubs ran out of beer!
