Dartmouth Story


______



Having set sail from Southampton, the Mayflower, with Pilgrims from the north of England, and Speedwell, carrying the Separatists from Lieden in Holland, didn't get very far before the Speedwell began to take on water again. The ships diverted to Dartmouth for repairs, arriving on 23 August 1620.According to passengers, the Speedwell was leaking like a sieve and required urgent attention. The Pilgrims were regarded with some suspicion by the Dartmouth locals and while the repairs were made in Bayard’s Cove harbour, the Mayflower moored upstream on the River Dart beside what is now known as Pilgrim Hill.It took about a week for the port's skilled craftsmen to make good the damage before the ships headed out into the English Channel, North Atlantic bound.Whilst much has changed on the waterfront since, many iconic buildings can still be recognised including the Tudor Bayard’s Cove Fort and St Saviour’s church. A fantastic way to see this history is by a detailed Mayflower trail through the cobbled streets of Dartmouth and of course by boat on the River Dart going past Pilgrims Hill.
