The Revolution House, in the Derbyshire village of Old Whittington, three miles north of Chesterfield, takes its name from the Revolution of 1688.

The House is open from Saturday 8th April to Saturday 30th September 2006 from 11am to 4pm every day except Tuesdays.

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.

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.
