    Hi Angie,

    As you will know, Sturton Le Steeple is the birth place of Pastor John Robinson known as the “Pilgrim Pastor” The village church of St. Peter & St. Paul was where John Robinson attended for the years before he went to Cambridge University. It is locked most of the time but there is a key available in the Pub opposite. There is a leaflet called the “Pilgrim Trail” that is full of details about where the Pilgrims lived in the surrounding villages etc. It would be well worth following this trail, see this web site for details. http://www.pilgrimfathersorigins.org/D_trail.html

    The house where John Robinson lived is called “Crossways” at the junction with Freemans Lane. This is still in private ownership so it is not possible to visit it.

    Hope you have a good holiday!

    My husband, friends, and I are coming to Sturton le Steeple in about a week on holiday. We are in search of ‘ANYTHING’ that has to do with the Mayflower pilgrims. Do you have any information or is there anything to see there?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    sincerely, angie
