Lacey Quarters

By Fefe
Here is another set from Kingston Lacey in Dorset.
This time the servants or staff areas , the lead was taken in the main house, others around the grounds.
Nowhere near as luxurious as the main interior. I hope you like them, please view large.

Thank you all so much for C&C on my gloomy upload yesterday, and a further UA from Arne yesterday for my upload 'Lacey Lights'.
All really appreciated!

Fine set Diane!

The number of Staff coathooks gives an idea of the personal involved in running the household, and, as can be seen, no expense sparred for the poor staff.
Godd to see the contrast between the Grandeur and the work areas.

Austere, especially when compared to the upstairs living conditions for the master of the house...

Every hallway should have one........a barrel of rum or perhaps it's beer!!! Great set, Diane.

Quite a contrast to your previous from here, Diane, but still a great set though 👍🏻 I'm rather favouring V3 - I made a clothes horse similar to those in woodwork many moons ago when I was at school! 😃

Wherever there is great property, there is great inequality.

There's Us and there's them; and they'll have their faces rubbed in it every time they pass through Our part of the house.
Stark, cold and uninviting, but I love the equipment in the laundry room.
A nice set of below stairs, Diane

Not much fun being a servant there then; but well captured.

Great set Diane. What a contrast. A real upstairs/downstairs moment.

I like the interior shots. This house could tell us a few stories Diane.
Good set and content. Isabel GrinGrin

I wonder if it's haunted...

A strong set, Diane....the lead is beautiful in its austerity. And what a contrast with the ornate opulence of the upstairs.

A bit bleaker than downstairs Diane , not even a light shade on that bare bulb, never mind a posh chandelier Wink
I do rather like V2, needs a nice vase of field flowers on that desk.
