A rival claim to be the spiritual home of the 'Mayflower' ship is being made by Harwich. The Essex town's supporters say it was the Mayflower's home port, the place she was built and the birthplace of her captain. They are now building a replica ship.
The Mayflower transported 102 pilgrims to New England in 1620. Plymouth is home to the Mayflower Steps in the city's Barbican area - the point at which the pilgrims are said to have boarded the ship, leaving England for North America.
Traditionally, Plymouth is the city most associated with the Mayflower's voyage. Harwich campaigners say their town should get more recognition for its role in the ship's history.
