A 10 foot replica scale model of the Mayflower is being built by Ian Kirkwood with help from local experts and volunteers.
The interior of the model will be exposed from stem to stern on one side to display the construction and interior, including Pilgrim and crew accommodation and other contents. A section will include model Pilgrim figures, hammocks, storage, stove etc. The model will form the centrepiece of a Mayflower exhibition with display boards and descriptive interactive screens, in the new proposed Visitor Centre extension.
We are grateful to a number of local, national and international sponsors and supporters of this project. A full list of Contributors to the Dartmouth Mayflower 400 project can be found here.
We welcome the generous donation, by M & H Antiques, of a Victorian cannon model which will be used as a template for the guns on the Mayflower model
The miniature barrels and the crows nest were kindly supplied by John Lancaster, the Master Woodturner of Barnstaple
