Selected for the 1987 Church Fine Arts Competition Show. Elder Wilford Woodruff was directed to this farm in Castle Frome, Herefordshire, on 4 March 1840. There he met John Benbow, an influential member of the United Brethren, who was baptized and then, with others, helped convert entire congregations of his church. Hundreds of those converts were baptized in this pond on his farm, which has changed little in the ensuing 150 years.
