Picturing history: Chatburn baptismal site

Published: Wednesday, Aug. 17 2011 3:39 p.m. MDT

In the Ribble Valley in eastern Lancashire, England, is the small village of Chatburn. Other nearby villages include Clitheroe, Downham and Rimington. Elder Heber C. Kimball served two fruitful missions in Great Britain during which he labored in this region. In particular, the villages of Chatburn and Downham were remarkably productive. This view shows the site where Heber and his companions baptized many of the converts from Chatburn, Downham, just a mile away, and perhaps other places in the area. This beautiful and historic site was first publically identified by Carol Wilkinson of Brigham Young University in 2006. Photo by Kenneth Mays
