The Mayflower Pilgrims Remembered Gallery

The story of the Mayflower Pilgrims is an enduring tale of  courage in the face of adversity. Though these early settlers of the New World play a significant role in America's past, they left their mark in Plymouth too. These early religious refugees, who sailed into Plymouth by chance, were only in port for a few days. Evidence of their stay can be found on the streets around the city and Mayflower is a familiar name heard by many.

The Mayflower set sail for the New World in 1620. However this epic journey begins some years earlier in the Midlands, in a small village called Scrooby.

Mayflower Pilgrims, Plymouth and Beyond Gallery

This gallery features a model of the Mayflower Ship built  on a 1:11 inch scale by apprentices at Devonport Royal Dockyard for the 350th year anniversary of the Mayflower Pilgrims sailing from Plymouth. The model features 360 fathoms of rigging, 332 handmade blocks and six handmade sails totalling 64 square feet in area.
