Mayflower and Maryland Churches
Herts Best Tours: As an experienced qualified tourist guide I can offer walks and tours of historic towns and pretty countryside.
• This tour continues the American theme and can be added to the American Connections walk to make a full day. Or booked as an independent tour.
• Our tour takes in four churches with connections to an American President, Harvard University and the founding of Baltimore, Maryland.
• But more importantly Hertfordshire has its very own Mayflower Pilgrim - Richard Warren - who married local girl Elizabeth Walker at Great Amwell in 1610.
• The church where they married is in a delightful setting close to the New River. Parts of the church date back to the late 1200s.
It is rarely open, but on this tour we will be able visit the church and learn a little of life in Amwell in the 1600s. Please note occasionally it may be necessary due to church services etc. to substitute another local church with American connections
