Comment
26th July 1931: The first clandestine Non-Conformist services to be held in Rawdon were in the shadow of Buckstone Rock until the first chapel was built in Cragg Wood in 1712.
An open air service was held yearly to commemorate those early secret services. Standing on the right here is Mr E J Kendall, he and his wife became Baptists in 1888 and served in many capacities, they lived on London Lane.

Undated: An open air service in memory of the early non- conformist religious who held their meetings in the shadow of Buckstone Rock. Above the rock is Rawdon Golf Clubhouse.
