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 is 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 are creating BookBenches inspired by journeys, adventure, freedom and pioneering spirit as part of a district-wide design competition.
Once complete, 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.
