Exhibition: The History of Revolution House
It was the dark year 1688 when rumour and unrest muttered up and down the country and James II sat uneasily on the throne of England.
On bleak and windswept Whittington Moor stood an alehouse called the Cock and Pynot (a dialect word for magpie). Through the rain, three horsemen rode to this remote place, stepped inside and started plotting to overthrow the King.
Learn about the history of the house and the role it played in the Revolution of 1688, in 2018 the house celebrated its 80th anniversary of being opened as a Museum.
