  • Peaselands was the farmhouse of Henry Thornborrow (1784-1846) and may still be found at grid reference NY631198. It is a listed building, and a photograph dating from 1936 may be found at https://www.british-history.ac.uk/rchme/westm/plate-19

    Thornborrow was very much involved with the WMA and his obituary, which I have added to this site, contains a contemporary account of worship on this site
