Low Attendance at Husborne Crawley Church

In 1851, the famous Religious Census was carried out across the nation - producing a result startling to the Establishment, in that only 40% of the population actually went to church.

Husborne Crawley church had its census (presumably the now-gone Methodist chapel did as well). After numbering the people present, the census noted ""The weather being unfavourable, the attendance was rather below average".

Well, at least that's the excuse the church wardens gave.
