Video: the Holt family maid
This is Mary, the maid that worked for the Holt family.
Here she tells us about a typical day working at Sudley House - lighting the fires, cleaning the fireplaces and dusting the ornaments in the drawing room.
There are more videos of the Holt family talking about the house, in the library, dining room and morning room.
