The birthplace of New England's Founders


Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire all bear claim to be the birthplace of the Pilgrim Fathers who first set sail to Leyden in Holland then from Boston, Lincolnshire, finally in The Mayflower from Plymouth. We spend the day at the villages their leaders were born in and at places associated with them,
