Derbyshire Photographs

Pentrich is peaceful rural Derbyshire village just northwest of industrial Ripley. In 1817 it was a hotbed of rebellion where 'England's last Revolution', was started. Their leader, Jeremiah Brandreth, and two others were hanged and beheaded in Derby. There are a number of plaques around Pentrich village commemorating the people and events of the fateful event.
