one small candle may light a thousand,
light here kindled hath shone unto many...''
The Mayflower Pilgrim
Museum tells the story of ordinary people who did an extraordinary thing that
changed the world.
From the sleepy villages around
North Nottinghamshire the Pilgrims risked their lives to stand up for freedom of
the people against State
and Church. They created the 'Separatist' movement leading the infamous
'Mayflower' journey to the birth of Modern Day America, their actions resulting
in the American Constitution, free elections, American Thanksgiving and the
English Civil War.
The Mayflower Pilgrims also changed
the course of religious history.
What the Pilgrim Fathers did
ultimately resulted in the British Legal System, human rights, the 'American
dream' and freedom for all.
Find out about
one of the most moving stories in history and why it
happened in North Nottinghamshire.
