Special Exhibitions

On the first floor, two rooms have been set aside in order to exhibit special collections.

A small room off the landing, halfway up the stairs, is used as an exhibition area to display the equipment used in various pastimes practised by ladies of the house, such as the art of letter writing and needlework.

The first exhibition room on the west of the landing is used to display items of jewellery and personal accessories dating mainly from the 19th Century. A fine collection of English silver used to serve food and drink during the 18th and 19th Centuries is exhibited in the second room on the west of the landing.
