About this Event

Discover more on this friendly walk!

Led by Immingham’s Pilgrim Heritage Ambassadors, learn about the Mayflower Pilgrims and their escape from England to Holland in 1608 before they went on to sail on the Mayflower ship twelve years later.

On this guided walk through Immingham, you will learn about the Pilgrims, their dramatic escape to Holland from our shores in 1608 and how Immingham existed in the 17th century. The walk has many stopping points along the way but includes three of the new heritage trail points.

2020 is the 400-year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower ship and Immingham joins eleven other towns and cities across England as they commemorate. You may not realize, but many of the Pilgrim Separatists were born and grew up in the Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire area.

Meeting Point: Immingham Museum

Start Time: The walk will commence at 10.30am but come a little earlier (10am) and you can view the Pilgrim exhibition in the museum before the walk.

End Time: The walk should conclude at 12.30pm at the Pilgrim Monument. At this point you can either continue your walk through the lovely woodland of Mayflower Wood, or you can go and visit one of the cafes for coffee & cake or tea & a sandwich, or you can return with us as we walk back to the Museum who will be serving a hot cup of coffee (or tea) and biscuits.
