Revolution House has been closed since December 2019 but is now ready to welcome visitors back and will be open to mark this year's Heritage Open Days.
The House 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 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 William and Mary of Orange.
You can watch a 15 minute video telling the story of the Revolution.
Entry to the house and garden is free, however donations are welcomed to help us deliver more great events.
