A very rare opportunity to see some personal objects belonging to Oliver Cromwell from the private collection of one of his direct descendants, which have not been seen in public for over half a century. These include a pair of Cromwell’s gloves, his baby gown, several portrait miniatures and a remarkable door lock used to secure his bedroom whilst he was Lord Protector.
