Geography: Yarm

Key points of interest in Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees, England. Yarm was founded on the banks of the River Tees at Yarm. For many centuries, Yarm was called Yarum, a name deriving from the Anglo-Saxon word Gear (pronounced 'yair'), which meant a pool used for catching fish. The suffix 'um' in the original name ‘Yarum’ indicated the Anglo-Saxon plural, so Yarm means 'fish pools' or 'fish weirs' (Simpson, 2009). QUOTATION The Methodist movement was started by John Wesley and his brother, Charles, in opposition to Calvinism. Preferring to preach indoors, rather than in the open fields, John Wesley set about building a number of chapels all over England. However, Yarm Methodist Church was John Wesley’s favourite chapel. In his journal, he wrote, "I preached ... in the evening in the New House at Yarm, by far the most elegant in England." SOURCES “John Wesley”. [s.d.].
