Pilgrim Fathers Memorial, England

Tonight, I am reporting on a memorial to a thwarted attempt by a group of English emigrants who planned to sail to sail to America in 1607 in pursuit of religious freedom.

Location of the memorial is five miles S.E.of the Lincolnshire town of Boston in eastern England, close to the estuaries of the rivers Haven and Welland.

More information on access and location can be found on this TripAdvisor report.


 The inscription reads:

"Near this place in 1607 those later known as the Pilgrim Fathers were thwarted in their first attempt to sail to find religious freedom across the seas.

Memorial re-worded by the generous gift of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches and the First Congregational Church of Wauwatosa, WI USA-2009."
