Across from St. George’s town square and over a bridge is Ordnance Island, where visitors can see a full-scale replica of Deliverance. The shipwrecked survivors of the Sea Venture built the pinnace (small sailing ship) in 1610 to carry them on to Virginia—arguably, a journey that saved the U.S. colony from famine. Alongside the vessel is a ducking stool, a contraption used in 17th-century witch trials to punish the wicked, and across the street is a bronze statue of Sir George Somers, captain of the Sea Venture.
