    A more accurate term than English Baptists is Welsh Baptists. The Malverns on the Worcestorshire/Herfordshire line is as far as the Romans and the Saxons went. The Beacon is the highest point in England. The "British Camp" (on the Beacon)gained it`s name as a reference to the ancient Britons (Welsh).

    It`s been traditionally taught, that the Saxon invasion was the result of the military decline of Rome. Evidance has been found, that it was a cataclysm causing crop failures. The Britons were pushed back into Wales.

    Christianity in the United Kingdom is filled with legend. The earliest evidances trace back to Glastonbury, Somerset, England. Evidance shows, that the Britons were Christians; but the Saxons were pegan. The Saxon invasion resulted in England falling into the "Dark Ages". The Saxons accepted Catholicism about the start of the 7th century. A list of abbots at the Glastonbury Abby ruins traces back to 601. A bishopric was established in Hereford in 636; but the Welsh torched it. The present cathedrals at Gloucestor, Hereford and Worcestor are Norman era. There are accounts of Christianity arriving in Somerset in the 1st century. There are records of a structure sitting on the grounds of the Glastonbury Abby since 166.
