John Wesley died 225 years ago today. During his life he travelled over two hundred and ninety thousand miles on horseback - that's twelve times around the globe.
He preached no less than fifteen sermons a week, making a total during those fifty-four years of over 42,000 sermons.
Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton went to Durham University to find out more about the man.
