The Local Area Around Misson

The locality of Misson has an extensive and interesting history stretching back over the centuries. Indeed, the area was home to a number of Roman forts as a result of its geographical proximity to both York and Lincoln.

The middle ages however, provide some interesting events which two men from the area were at the centre of. The Pilgrim Fathers included amongst their number William Brewster and William Bradford. These two men have strong connections with the church at Babworth and travelled on the Mayflower on its journey to the United States. The link creates a strong bond between the area and visiting Americans as is has been estimated that the original Pilgrim Fathers, estimated to number around 100, have approximately one million ancestors in the United States. This makes the area popular with visiting American tourists and a Mayflower Trail has been developed to allow visitors to see where their ancestors came from.

The local countryside provides some very picturesque walks from the Angel Inn and the annual Classic Car Run from the pub provides an opportunity to view this first hand.
