To understand the issues underpinning The Jacobite Rebellion, it is necessary to go back to the English Reformation carried out by Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. They created a Church of England, which retained the ceremony of the Catholics but introduced the theology of Protestantism. A small minority in the North remained true to the old faith, particularly in Lancashire, Durham and Northumberland. We will take you on a tour around the beautiful medieval village of Blanchland to discuss the rebel leaders of the North of England and the civil war that spanned two centuries.
