North Notts Journeys

More than 30 million people can trace their ancestry to the 102 passengers and approximately 30 crew who sailed on the Mayflower for a new life in the New World.

2020 was the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower ship setting sail to the New World. To celebrate North Nottinghamshire’s links to this important historical event local schools, colleges and North Notts BID members have created BookBenches inspired by journeys, adventure, freedom and pioneering spirit as part of a district-wide design competition.

The BookBenches will be displayed in cultural venues across the district and we hope the trail will help to reinvigorate local high streets across North Nottinghamshire and reattract some of the footfall that has been lost during these uncertain times.

Location: North Nottinghamshire, UK
Trail: 17th June – 5th September 2021
Client: North Notts Business Improvement District (BID)
