Pentrich…200 Years Since Englands Last Revolution

9th June 2017 was the 200th anniversary of Englands last (and probably forgotten) revolution. It is quite personal as the brother of my ancestor was transported to Australia on the ‘Tottenham’ ship…he was never to return, although he did receive a posthumous pardon. His name was Josiah Godber and some of the letters back home to his wife are available to read online, I have included a photograph I took of his Mother and Fathers grave on my visit on 9th June.

Here are some photos of this lovely village and it’s church and pub.
