Pilgrim Fathers' Memorial

The memorial was built to mark the area of Scotia Creek, Fishtoft, where the Pilgrim Fathers attempted to flee Boston to Holland.

This memorial, built in 1957, is just outside Boston at Fishtoft.  It marks the area of Scotia Creek where, in 1607, a group of puritans, who were later to be known as the Pilgrim Fathers, attempting to flee to Holland were arrested and handed over to the authorities.  After being tried and held at Boston Guildhall they eventually left and ultimately escaped to Holland and then to the New World.

The Pilgrim Fathers Memorial is located on the north bank of The Haven at the site of the former Scotia Creek, Fishtoft, Boston.
