Victorian illustration to download showing Revolution House, Whittington, Derbyshire, a tumbledown stone and thatch cottage. It is so named because a meeting here sparked off the Glorious Revolution of 1688. The Earl of Devonshire, the Earl of Danby and John D’Arcy met to plan the overthrow of James II and install James’s daughter Mary and her husband William of Orange on the throne. Today the house has been restored and is a museum.
