Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. Writing after the events of 1604窶1606, the Jesuit priest Father Tesimond's description of his friend Robert Catesby: "his countenance was exceedingly noble and expressive, his conversation and manners were peculiarly attractive and imposing, and that by the dignity of his character he exercised an irresistible influence over the minds of those who associated with him." #homeofthegunpowderplot #gunpowder #themanorhouseashbystledgers #gunpowderplot #bonfirenight #countryhouse
The Plot Room, Ashby St. Ledgers was a type of 窶呂ommand Centre窶 during the planning of the Gunpowder Plot. In the room above the Gatehouse, with its privacy from the main house and clear view of the surrounding area, Robert Catesby and the other conspirators planned a great deal of the Gunpowder Plot.
