"Site of the house owned by John Bray where Charles Wesley was converted on 21 May 1738 (and where John Wesley declared 'I believe' at about 10pm on 24 May). Both John and Charles Wesley lodged here from 1738 to 1739. John Bray had connections with the Moravians, and for a time his house served as a centre for early Methodist and Moravian activities."
