In the popular imagination, great country estates are enchanted places, belonging to the real world and yet somehow removed from the humdrum of everyday life. Behind the walls and parkland fencing of Britain's country estates, demi-paradises can be found. To fully understand what life was really like as part of the estate community, John Bailey has recorded the memories of a range of people from estates all over the country - from Trebah in Cornwall to Caer Beris Manor in Wales and Chatsworth in Derbyshire - who take us into the very heart of these time-forgotten places: cooks and butlers, aged retainers, housemaids and gardeners, nursery maids and estate workers.show more
