Villages near or within the family estate have the same street names and district names  as the London estate.
This house is lived in and not open to the public, only the gardens are open for viewing three times a year to raise money for charity.

Nothing to do with food Susie.

Ooooh, well done Jean, you got it!

It's a dress lifter, but maybe I should explain that it wasn't for the benefit of Victorian gentlemen!  The ladies used it to lift their dress hems out of muddy puddles.
 Cool

Over to you again.......
