A quick enquiry I received yesterday via Facebook from reader Leigh Millward – I’m sure that out there amongst the readership, we have the knowledge and power to answer this interesting question.
Over to Leigh:
I am looking for some information concerning the old Wesleyan Methodist Church on the High Street in Brownhills, it’s long gone now, knocked down in the 60’s so I heard. Would you be able to best advise where to look for any information on it?
I am asking because family rumour is that my great grandfather Hosea Silvester was the Minister there, having tried directly contacting the Methodist Church archives and getting no luck, I thought it best to ask here!
Thanks in advance and have a great day.
Thanks – what a great question!
Hosea Silvester – what a fantastic name. I recently covered the Wesleyan Methodist Church when reader Susan Austin generously donated some scans of a postcard featuring the lost place of worship.
Can any of you help, please? Either comment here, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com and I’ll pass your message on.
