The Pentrich Revolution

In June 1817, a group of almost 400 lightly armed men from the Derbyshire villages of Pentrich and South Wingfield marched towards Nottingham. They believed they would join a larger group of revolutionaries marching from the North toward London in an attempt to overthrow the government. Within 24 hours one man had been shot dead and the uprising had been put down by government troops.

Dotted around the pub we have leaflets showing you parts of the walk that these men took. You can also view all the walks on the Pentrich Revolution website.
