I thought I would start a new chapter on the Old Whittington one Place study website

As I was researching the men on the war memorial I was coming across all sorts different newspaper reports concerning Old Whittington. I thought I would try and share a few on here and also on the webpage.

Todays offering is a celebration of the Centenary of the ‘Glorious revolution’ from the Derbyshire Mercury 2nd October 1788. From the sounds of it quite a big celebration – the cost 1 guinea! Checking the currency convertor website one guinea in 1790 would be the equivalent of £80 now, so the celebrations would only be open to the wealthy of the area!
