Paradise Square

John Wesley preached in Paradise Square to "the largest congregation I ever saw on a Weekday" on 15 July 1779.

A commemorative plaque unveiled in 1951 by film magnate J Arthur Rank, a prominent Methodist, commemorates the event in this lovely Georgian square, which also contains plaques commemorating other Sheffield notables.

Also nearby Sheffield Cathedral also has Wesley connections including a window in the Chapter House depicting his preaching in Paradise Square.
