Bassetlaw Museum and Pilgrim Roots have announced the launch of a series of videos which will explore the people and places behind the Mayflower story in the UK.
The series, called Pilgrim Churches: Where it all Began, takes an episodic look at the churches which passengers and crew of the Mayflower would have been familiar with in the 17th century. The 7 episodes will take viewers to a number of churches which played a role in the lead up to the Mayflower setting sail, including sites and stories from Babworth, Retford, Worksop, Sturton, Gainsborough, Scrooby and Austerfield.
The first episode, which will be available from 8pm on Thursday October 8, will focus on Babworth Church, and tell the story of Richard Clyfton, who preached nonconformity to congretionalists which included other notable Mayflower names such as William Brewster and William Bradford.
Further episodes will be made available each Thursday, with the final episode being shown on November 19. You'll be able to watch the videos from the Pilgrim Roots Facebook page, the Bassetlaw Museum and Pilgrims Gallery YouTube channel, and shortly after, the Pilgrim Roots website.
