Despite an insistence that all times and places are potentially sacramental, the growth of pilgrimage to sites associated with early Quaker history has endowed certain places with particular spiritual significance for Friends. This paper uses Firbank Fell and Pardshaw Crag in Cumbria, two locations that contain rocks known as ‘Fox’s Pulpit’, as a starting point to explore the place of ‘storied ground’ in Quaker history and identity, focussing on the ‘1652 Country’ in north-west England.
