The servants' quarters in many National Trust properties are particularly well preserved, giving an insight into how a country house and estate was run in the 18th and 19th centuries. This book looks at the roles of the land agent, the stable lads and the gardener. Wherever possible, the author cites specific individuals to illustrate their roles, such as John Caesar, the agent at Erdigg.
