The first Methodist preacher to visit Alnwick was probably John Trembath, in 1744. Charles Wesley is said to have preached here in 1746. In 1748 John Wesley preached at the Cross, but commented that 'all were moved a little, but none very much'. Alnwick became a regular stopping point on his two-yearly journeys to Scotland.
