ABOLITION: SUGAR
By Rev Julyan Drew
The minister of the Newlyn Trinity Methodist Chapel, the Reverend Julyan Drew, explains why a protest campaign more than two hundred years ago means that many people in Cornwall refuse to take sugar in their tea. In this film the part of John Wesley is played by Watson Weeks. The images of John Wesley are reproduced with the permission of the Trustees of Wesley's Chapel, City Road, London.
