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.
Philip Nuttall and Fred Thompson from Barnsley’s James Hudson Taylor Group are giving an illustrated talk on James Hudson Taylor and the trail that marks 24 sites of his early life in Barnsley.
The talk is illustrated by photographs from the early 1900s, by permission of the Tasker Trust, when much of Barnsley remained as it did in James Hudson Taylor’s time.
The presentation also includes information on Salem Wesleyan Reform Church, built in 1825 and a ‘home church’ of the Hudson Taylor family.
The Barnsley Civic Trust talk takes place on Tuesday 26th February at 7.00 pm at the Masonic Hall, Cockerham Lane, Barnsley S75 1AT. All welcome.

We speak up for local people and help local people have a voice and influence local developments.
