Hidden Victorian kitchen


When was the last time you went exploring in your basement to find a ca. 1830s, mostly in situ Victorian kitchen? That's what happened to the owners of the house at Cefn Park, a turn of the 19th century estate in North Wales. The kitchen was in disuse for about 100 years before being blocked off at the start of WWII. The contents include a full oven, pots, kettles on the stove, utensils, a large dining table for the servants . . . everything that a stately house would require. Amazing! Here is the full article, complete with great photographs.

That is amazing! Much more exciting than Andy's discovery of a stash of old mary jane and a pipe after he bought the house we live in. :D

How odd to wall off pots and pans! I can just picture the servants getting a meal ready. Totally amazing.
