The kitchen in the manor house was one of the rooms on the ground floor that had original features intact. This shot was towards the end of the visit and I was heartened to find this room with all the facilities intact. THe kitchen sink shown, a great Aga and two hand pumps for fresh water that must have been drawn from a well under the floor somewhere.

The surrounding rooms had the upstairs downstairs as it were – floors fallen through.
