Our technical team, two of which are shipbuilders, are installing the shaping and securing timbers for the shape of the bow! You can see the panels being fitted that will hold the external timbers.

Torridge Gates & Timber products are kindly cutting back some timber boards to a thickness of 8mm so they can be bent to take the shape.

  • BBC - Replica Mayflower built to be burned in Great Torrington

    A group of volunteers have built a life-size replica of the Mayflower - but only so they can burn it down for charity.

    The Great Torrington Cavaliers will have spent five years on the project when they set fire to it next year.

    Next year is the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower taking the pilgrim fathers from Plymouth to the US and the bonfire is one part of planned celebrations in Devon.

    Good build progress again, you can see the rigging has now started to be installed and the stone work for the quay is being painted!
