James Hudson Taylor guided walk – Tuesday 17 September

A red plaque trail commemorates the places that James Hudson Taylor would have known in Barnsley. That’s  James Hudson Taylor – a lad from Barnsley who in the 19th century became a missionary, went to China, and founded one of the largest movements in the world. 

Following on from the Barnsley Civic Trust talk earlier this year,  we have arranged for a guided walk around the town centre based on the locations associated with James Hudson Taylor. All are welcome! 

The walk will take place on Tuesday 17th September and will be led by Fred Thompson of the JHT Trust. The walk will start outside Barnsley College main building at 6.00 pm.

This promises to be a very interesting and enlightening evening. Do come along! 

James Hudson Taylor talk

Great talk on Tuesday 26 February by Fred Thompson and Philip Nuthall on the James Hudson Taylor trail in Barnsley and on Salem Church. We discusssed raising awareness of James Hudson Taylor and attracting more people to Barnsley to visit Salem Church and follow the trail.

Good to know that the two Barnsley Civic Trust blue plaques started the trail in 2012; now augmented by the red plaques of the trail
