Adrian Gray was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the history of dissenters in central England. He was laid back, understanding, and accommodating. He was willing to answer all questions. The tour was reasonably priced. Pilgrims & Prophets ministry enhanced my own History ministry as director of the BHRS of America. Thanks Pilgrims & Prophets

Maggy was excellent to work with in leading up to the day of our tour (we took the train from York down to Retford where she and her husband met us at the station) and customized our tour to include a few villages around the area where my husband's family lived in addition to my Mayflower ancestors, so that make it extra special. Maggy is very well versed in the Mayflower history and the area as well and was fascinating to listen to her share the history as we went from place to place with her and her husband. I highly recommend this tour!

Enjoyed a day tour exploring some of the treasures in Bassetlaw and nearby. The tour was well organised with due consideration to comfort and safety. We visited three historical sites: the Church of St Mary and All Saints, Chesterfield; Bolsover Parish Church of St Mary and St Lawrence; and the Church of Norton Cuckney St Mary. At each place, the local guides were informative and entertaining. Our highlights were climbing 150 steps to get close-up and personal with the leaning, twisted spire at Chesterfield; the bespoke handout about the timeline links between Bolsover and Bassetlaw created by a guide at Bolsover; and learning about the Battle of Hatfield in 633 AD and the burial pits at Cuckney. A day full of learning and hope that these precious treasures will be preserved.

Fascinating and immensely informative one day tour today for five of us, starting at Worksop Priory and then various villages and churches in Babworth, Scrooby, Gainsborough, Austerfield, Sturton-le-Steeple/ Littleborough where the early Baptists and separatists lived before moving on to Holland and then onto America on the Mayflower in 1620. We learnt about William Brewster, William Bradford and John Robinson - saw where they lived and worshipped. Everyone who has any interest in early dissenters, Baptist history and the origins of toleration in the West should make the journey to North Nottinghamshire and do this tour. As we had a 2 hour drive up the A1 before the 9:30am start in Worksop, it was useful to call in at Morrisons for a quick breakfast and petrol, just around the corner from the Priory. Excellent group lunch later at a countryside restaurant near Ranskill. It was helpful reading Adrian Gray's book 'From here we changed the world' in advance from Amazon which described all the places we visited. I also benefited from reading 'Battle for the church' which covers the period, by David Gay. Thank you Maggy for all your work in fixing up access to the inside of all the church buildings and halls and your friendly, relaxed and informative style. I am checking your site to see what else I can go on.
