History - Mayflower Replica - Brixham
The Mayflower II, which is a replica of the 17th-century ship Mayflower, celebrated for transporting the Pilgrims to the New World. The replica was built in Devon, England, in a collaboration between Englishman Warwick Charlton and Plimoth Plantation, an American museum. The men worked from reconstructed ship blueprints held by the American museum, with hand construction by English shipbuilders using traditional methods. It was built at the Upham Shipyard in Brixham and financed by private donations in England and the Plimouth Plantation. The ship represented the alliance between the United Kingdom and the USA for collaboration in World War II.
