Revolution House

This pretty thatched cottage in the village of Old Whittington hides a secret - it was part of a plot to overthrow a king...

In 1688, three local noblemen, the Earl of Devonshire, the Earl of Danby and Mr John D'Arcy met at Whittington disguised as a hunting party, to begin planning their part in the overthrow of James II. A rainstorm sent them seeking shelter to the Cock and Pynot alehouse. Now known as Revolution House, it is a free public museum. There is a display of 17th century furniture, a video on the Revolution of 1688 and a programme of special events through the summer.

Open Saturday 4 April to Sunday 27 September, 11am-4pm. Open every weekend and Bank Holiday Monday.
