We might easily be tempted to romanticise conventicles in the time of snow. In later times poems were written of how “all around the snow was falling, yet there they held their place”. The hardship was, however, acute. Such weather also certainly added to the dangers they faced yet people still gathered. We follow the account of one conventicle held during thick snow in the area surrounding Closeburn, near Dumfries to find out more about what they faced.
