Have you ever wondered what life was like ‘below stairs’ at a Yorkshire country house? A fascinating new exhibition exploring the daily lives of servants at the grand Burton Constable Hall opens on 4th May 2019! Containing glimpses of the hidden world of the servant’s hall, with its own strict hierarchy and limited comforts, this exhibition reveals the day-to-day details of life for servants at the hall from the 18th and 19th Centuries. Discover what life would have been like for Antoine Reny, Lady Clifford Constable’s fashionable French Lady’s Maid from Paris, and for Susan Hoe, the first housemaid in 1866. The display reveals the difficulties of life ‘below stairs’, but also the status that some servants held in the household and how close some came to being counted as family.
