Cromwell's House in Ely

Oliver Cromwell's House is a house in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England.

This was the family home of Oliver Cromwell. The kitchen dates from around 1215, other parts being built later. In 1988, it was bought by the local council, and has been refurbished to show how it may have looked during Cromwell's lifetime.[1]

The house, which has eight period rooms, is promoted by the Campaign to Protect Rural England.[2]
