Description

This is an excellent well researched and presented account of "pilgrims and rebels" in the area of North Nottinghamshire and West Lincolnshire. Gray is a local expert and an expert advisor to the Pilgrims and Prophets group in the area which organise local visits of the interesting sites connected with Christian history. The book answers the question, "What is special about the area which had a huge impact in England, America and worldwide?" Hence, the excellent title of the book the contents of which answer the question. From the late sixteenth century the area was the location of puritan and separatist congregations. With the four hundredth anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower in 2020, people will be fascinated to learn about the locality from which they came. With the layout, photos and illustrations, the local sites come to life. This is essential reading. Although Scrooby is customarily well known because of the pilgrim colony leader, William Brewster, the author outlines a constellation of towns and villages which were connected with the early separatist congregations which fled first to Leiden in the Netherlands and sailed on the Mayflower in 1620. The book is very enjoyable and thorough in its account of the lives of local Christian folk who were known for their independent views of faith and Christian practice including Methodists, Quakers and Baptists. It serves as a guide to villages and towns from which they came and why the area is so important to the Christian history of England. I cannot recommend it highly enough................even for non-specialists, it is a very lively and interesting read. ( Rita Cruise OBrien)
