Welcome to a new series of ‘ACE stories for the culturally curious’. Following our E-Newsletters earlier this winter exploring some lesser-known historic house museums, we return across four instalments to pay visits to a selection of houses and museums associated with notable individuals from the past 400 years. We begin in the 17th century in Cambridgeshire, at the home of Oliver Cromwell in Ely and his dedicated museum in Huntingdon.
