This wooden roundel encloses a printed note card which reads "Part of the Sycamore Tree planted in Epworth Church Yard at the Birth of the Rev. John Wesley by his Father. Wesleyan Centenary 1839."
Quite a few of these roundels were made; they are typical pieces of 'Wesleyana' popular in the 1800s. See also other wooden items made from a sycamore tree from Epworth churchyard in the Online Collection.
