  • Robin Barker, living in Australia, got in touch with enquiries about Primitive Methodism in Golborne. Robin passed on the following link to Golborne Trinity chapel:

    “A friend of my mothers was married in that church in 1944 to an Australian Airforce navigator just before he went on his mission. He came back safely then a bit later after he’d gone on his way to Australia, she and a bunch of war brides, most of them pregnant, were put on a boat to Australia. Many of them suffered extended periods of morning sickness. She was seventeen and lived in Cross Street. “
