About the event

Take a guided walk of 1600 Harleston.  A family from Harleston were on board the Mayflower ship which sailed to America 400 years ago.  They became involved in the very foundation of modern America.

There are many buildings still surviving which would have been familiar to our Harleston Mayflower Pilgrims.  Take a journey back in time to reveal what lies beneath the modern buildings and discover the Harleston of 1600.  Watch as today’s buildings transform into their former selves.  Find out why our pilgrims left Harleston and what life was like 400 years ago in the very spot where we now stand.

This is a very special walk, showing the important role Harleston has played in the very creation of the world’s largest and most successful country.  It will be launched as part of the Heritage Open Days 2024.
