Sturton-le-Steeple, birthplace of John Smyth (the first Baptist) and home of John Robinson, one of the Pilgrim Fathers is 2 miles away. The Mayflower Pilgrim Centre in Retford which is family friendly tells the story of their epic journey. One of the smallest churches in the country is at Littleborough which is also the site of Segelocum, the lost Roman City that was larger than Lincoln.
