Later Danish settlers established hamlets side by side and these communities and local place names nearly all ended in 'By' and 'Thorpe'. It lies between the Lincolnshire Wolds and the coast and is mainly used for cropping. Fields are of sugar beet, cabbages, cauliflower, broad beans, peas, potatoes, barley and wheat. The land is very flat with many drains and canals with high floodbanks along their sides. John WESLEY preached some of his first sermons in Alford. The little chapel is still there - used as a garage.</i></li>
  390. <li>Ivan Dominikovich also tells us:<br /><i>In the year 1630 Alford was plague stricken, almost a quarter of a century earlier than the great plague of London in 1665. The town was probably saved from extinction by the generosity of the people of the surrounding districts when a cross was placed on the top of a hill (Mikes Cross Hill). In a receptacle that contained vinegar [the only known disinfectant at that time] the Alford people placed their money, the other people would bring food stuffs, poultry, eggs etc., and place it out at fixed prices and retire. The Alford people then climbed the hill, removed the food they wanted and left money in its place. This way they never came into contact but were able to know the situation and in doing so surely saved Alford and many of its families from disaster. At the top of Miles Cross Hill the food was left by a large stone. At some point this PLAGUE STONE as it is locally known was removed and placed in the garden of Tothby Manor where it still lies today.</i></li>
  391. <li>Market Day was held every Tuesday.</li>
  392. <li>The Alford Savings' bank was established in 1817.</li>
  393. <li>A gas works was erected here in 1842.</li>
  394. <li>A Police Station was built here in 1844.</li>
  395. <li>Around 1850, the East Lincolnshire branch of the Great Northern railway established a station here, about a half mile west of the town.</li>
  396. <li>The Corn Exchange was erected here in the Market Place in 1856.</li>
