Cromwell's Navy

04-12-21 - 03-04-22,
11:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Admission: £FREE

Location: The Cromwell Museum, Huntingdon

This winter the Cromwell Museum is staging a special exhibition exploring how the 17th century English navy was significantly reformed by three men all educated at Huntingdon Grammar School, in the building which is today houses the Museum.

The story of these men, the navy at the time and life on board ship will be explored as part of the ‘Cromwell’s Navy’ temporary display at the Cromwell Museum from December. Amongst the exhibits will be remarkable artefacts recently recovered from the wreck of the ‘London’, one of Cromwell’s ships which sank off Southend. Another will be a huge scale model of the ‘Naseby’, recently acquired by the Cromwell Museum after being donated by the family of a professional prop maker, who made this in his spare time when not making creatures for ‘Star Wars’ and the Muppets films!

With support from Huntingdonshire District Council, and funding from the UK Government Welcome Back Fund, in association with the European Regional Development Fund.
