Life Below Stairs

Special Exhibition 22nd June - 8th September 2013

An intriguing look at the lives of people ‘in service’ from footmen to housemaids.  With a fascinating range of images of servants at work in the great houses of Cheshire and an array of artefacts exploring the chores involved in running households before the advent of modern gadgets.

And coming soon…
