Hindlip Hall
HINDLIP HALL is in Worcestershire
Worcestershire
. The first major hall was built before 1575. It played a significant role in both the Babington and the Gunpowder plots (where it hid four people in priest holes , who were eventually executed). It was Humphrey Littleton who told the authorities that Edward Oldcorne was hiding here after he had been heard saying Mass at Hindlip Hall. Four people were executed and the owner at that time barely escaped execution himself due to the intercession of Lord Monteagle . Afterwards it was owned by a poet and was for a while a girls' school before being rebuilt by Lord Southwell in 1820. The Hall was designated as a potential home for the war cabinet in 1940. It is now home to the West Mercia Police headquarters

Robert Wintour
ROBERT WINTOUR (1568 – 30 January 1606) and THOMAS WINTOUR (1571 or 1572 – 31 January 1606), also spelt WINTER, were members of the Gunpowder Plot , a failed conspiracy to assassinate King James I . Brothers, they were related to other conspirators, such as their cousin, Robert Catesby , and a half-brother, John Wintour, also joined them following the plot's failure. Thomas was an intelligent and educated man, fluent in several languages and trained as a lawyer, but chose instead to become a soldier, fighting for England in the Low Countries , France, and possibly in Central Europe. By 1600, however, he changed his mind and became a fervent Catholic. On several occasions he travelled to the continent and entreated Spain on behalf of England's oppressed Catholics, and suggested that with Spanish support a Catholic rebellion was likely. As momentum was building behind a peace settlement between the two countries, Thomas's pleas fell on deaf ears
