Firmly routed in local history, pupils learn about the people who lived at Astley Hall in 1851. The housemaids take the pupils on an immersive tour as they find out what life was like for a servant at Astley Hall. They will discover more about the various servants’ roles and assist them in their duties of making firelighters, folding napkins, washing and ironing.

Teachers will receive a pre-visit pack which includes the census returns for Astley in 1851 along with suggested activities and extra information for classroom activities.
