An insight into the life and times of Victorian Servants. Stepping back in time and in costume to experience life below stairs in a large country house.

It is 1891. Lady Annaly, the owner of Holdenby House is looking for servants.

Children are sent to Holdenby from the workhouse who are too poor to attend school.

Children will find themselves under the strict supervisions of:

  • The Fierce Housekeeper, who will tell you precisely what she expects.
  • The Cook, who will show you around the kitchen and allocate jobs
  • The Butler, who rules the servants with a rod of iron.
  • A Housemaid who will instruct you in your duties.

This project covers various aspects of the National Curriculum KS1 and KS2
