Jordans is a popular village with visitors to the area due to its strong links with the USA. The 17th Century
farmhouse, now a Guest House and Conference Centre, was once home to the Quakers. Within the grounds of the
farm is the Mayflower Barn, reputedly built with the timbers of the Mayflower boat which carried the Pilgrim
Fathers to America in 1620. The Quaker Meeting House, was built in 1688 to take advantage of James II's
Declaration of Indulgence permitting Quakers to practice their religion openly. Outside the Meeting House is the
graveyard in which lies the remains of William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania in America.
