Mecca, Rome, Lourdes, Santiago, Canterbury, Lindisfarne, Iona………and now Barnsley
Birthplace of James Hudson Taylor (whom I'd never heard of until I read the link )  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/9022829/The-pilgrimage-of-70-million-Chinese-to-Boots-in-Ba...

No other missionary in the nineteen centuries since the Apostle Paul has had a wider vision and has carried out a more systematised plan of evangelising a broad geographical area than Hudson Taylor.
