JPS Scaffolding help with memorial restorations

JPS Scaffolding erected a full scaffold with supports at the top to the Pilgrim Father’s Memorial, at the shoreline of Mayflower Park and Southampton’s historic walls.

The memorial was built in 1913, to mark and honour the departure of The Mayflower and Speedwell, which departed from Southampton Quay in 1620, heading for the Americas.

The restoration and repairs are being undertaken in readiness for the 400th anniversary of their sailings.

Great care was taken by JPS Scaffolding, in close conjunction with the monuments team at Southampton City Council, to design and install the scaffold so all areas could be accessed and no damage caused to this beautiful monument.
