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 illustrated talk on the historic streets of the town and their significant buildings will be given by Stuart Currie of the Tasker Trust on the evening of Tuesday 11th June at the Masonic Hall, Cockerham Lane off Huddersfield Road (just north of Barnsley Town Centre).
Stuart will look at the historic streets of the town and will highlight significant buildings sadly lost in the changes which have taken place over about the last 100 years.
He will also look at the buildings which we really should ensure do not disappear in the future. An important role for Barnsley Civic Trust.
The talk will be enriched with images from the Tasker collection of historic photographs.
The meeting will commence at 7.00pm but refreshments will be available from 6.30pm.
