Photographer's Note

Recently I visited the Mayflower Museum situated on the Barbican in Plymouth.
The museum is set over three floors, and the visit begins at the top of the building, hence the views from this vantage point.

"The 'Steps' today, consist of a commemorative portico with Doric columns of Portland Stone that was built in 1934, and a small platform over the water.

The Mayflower Steps are flanked by the British and American flags and mark the final departure point of the 102 passengers who set sail.

The actual steps that the Pilgrims left from no longer exist. A granite block bearing the Ship's name marks the site, whilst a tablet commemorating the voyage was erected alongside in 1891.

The Pilgrims are believed to have finally left England aboard the Mayflower, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to settle in North America, on 6th September 1620."

Two more views of the harbour area in the w/s.

The picnic benches in the foreground are there for the public to make use of, as very close by there are food outlets where you can get a coffee or a bite to eat.

It was a warm but cloudy day!

Thanks for looking.
