A preaching plan showing the preaching appointment in the Okehampton Circuit (Devon) in the summer and early autumn of 1847. At the time, there were 17 places of Wesleyan worship in the circuit.

A characteristic feature of Methodism is its methodical structure and the provision of preaching and prayer meeting plans. The plans are essentially a diary of prayer and preaching appointments for preachers and other prayer and worship leaders working within a Methodist 'circuit', or defined groupings of chapels.
