Brennan & Whalley is designing an exhibition for a 5m project to build Mayflower III, a replica of the Pilgrim Fathers’ ship, and a visitor attraction.

The wooden ship will sail to America before returning to dock at Rotherhithe, east London, from where the original Mayflower sailed in 1620.

Brennan & Whalley is to design an exhibition to depict life on board for the original passengers and crew. The group’s work will be both on board the vessel and in a visitor centre at the dock.

Southwark Heritage Trust is behind the project and is to apply for a Millennium Lottery grant. The trust believes American tourists will flock to see the ship and exhibition.

The group won the work on the strength of previous projects.
