Pilgrim Fathers' Memorial

Pilgrim Fathers Memorial 001
Pilgrim Fathers Memorial 002


    This memorial, built in 1957, is just outside Boston at Fishtoft. The memorial marks the location where, in 1607 a group of puritans, who were later to be known as the Pilgrim Fathers, attempting to flee to Holland were arrested and handed over to the authorities.

    After being tried and held at Boston Guildhall they eventually left and ultimately escaped to Holland and then on to the New World. The Pilgrim Fathers Memorial is located on the north bank of The Haven at the site of the former Scotia Creek, Fishtoft, Boston.

    The memorial is a great starting point for a natural walk around Havenside Country Park, enjoying big open skies and views of The Wash.
