Walk with old maps exploring this riverside village where the Mayflower sailed from in 1620. Among the warehouses we find a barge building workshop and a charity school founded by shipwrights. There is the engine house from Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel and the mortuary where bodies recovered from the river were taken. The watchhouse survives close by the parish church, which has columns made from ships masts.
