A new Pilgrims Trail map has been developed to coordinate with the fresh interpretation boards at key Mayflower sites in North Notts., South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. This is available for download via the white button below, and physical copies can be collected at the Pilgrims Gallery and other locations.

In addition, the Pilgrim Heartland Trail was produced jointly by Bassetlaw District Council and Doncaster Council. This trail is still available to download.

Both trails cover local villages in North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire that are steeped in the history of William Brewster and William Bradford; a history that most local people are familiar with. 

These trails are not a linear routes so sites can be visited in any order. If you are a Mayflower descendant or are especially interested in a particular Pilgrim, certain villages or churches will hold much greater appeal than others and that is where our knowledge can help you.
We strongly recommend you contact a member of the Pilgrim Roots Museum staff to let us know you are coming and allow us to help you plan your visit. Not all of the churches on the trail are open every day unless they know visitors are coming. Plus, we can help you plan your visit and offer the latest information on church services, special events, parking details and tour guide recommendations which will add to your enjoyment of the Pilgrim Heartland Trail.
