Building Information
The Revolution House, in the Derbyshire village of Old Whittington, three miles north of Chesterfield, takes its name from the Revolution of 1688. Three hundred years ago, this cottage was an alehouse, the 'Cock and Pynot' ('Pynot' is a dialect word for magpie), and it was here, as history and tradition relate, that three local noblemen- the Earl of Devonshire (from nearby Chatsworth), the Earl of Danby and Mr. John D'Arcy - met to begin planning their part in events which led to the overthrow of King James II in favour of Willam and Mary of Orange.
Collections Overview
The collections relate to the history of the house and the local area.
Display Overview
The ground floor of the cottage has a display of 17th century country furniture, and upstairs there is a changing programme of exhibition on local themes. Also on show is a video film which tells the story of the Revolution
