All Saints Church, Babworth


All Saints' Church is one of the key landmarks in the story of the Pilgrim Fathers who left England to form English settlements in what was to become America.

Located in Babworth, a small village close to Retford, the church dates back to the 15th century. In 1586, the congregation formed a Separatist movement under the leadership of Parson Richard Clyfton. While other Puritan groups maintained some of their links with the Church of England, the Separatists followed their own style of worship.

The Pilgrims made the decision to leave England and they crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower. After the first passengers landed in 1620 they began to form the first communities.

William Brewster, who lived at nearby Scrooby Manor, and William Bradford, who were both passengers on the Mayflower. Clyfton died in Amsterdam in 1616.
