Easter is early this year and the need to get that spring cleaning underway has never been greater. The magazines and newspaper articles come out with all the fantatic ideas on best ways to get this cleaned, or that method for uncluttering the office etc. Spring really does bring recouperative feelings and restores the well being in most folk. I have dealings with a very old house, it has been standing since he 1730s and has seen many changes. I see from the volunteer notes that it used to have a full complement of 26 live in servants at any one time. this seems a massive number for the size of the house. However, when we consider that it has always been very prominent in the fox hunting world and used to house the beagles. The heavy emphasis on cleaning the several sets of hunting pinks and breeches does confirm it’s importance of that status.
