Crosslands

Crosslands was the name of John and Anne Audland’s home, near Sedbergh in the extreme northwest corner of Yorkshire.  They were living at Crosslands when George Fox came on a June day in 1652 and preached to a thousand outside a chapel on nearby Firbank Fell.  George Fox visited the Audlands, then went on to preach at Kendal, Underbarrow, Lindale, Ulverstone, and at Swarthmore Hall, where the Quaker movement was born.
