The 1901 kitchen

This room is displayed to reflect life at the Ancient House in 1901 when the population census tells us Thomas Newton, a rabbit warrener, was living here with his wife Emily, their family and four lodgers. The kitchen includes a working coal-fired range for cooking, a copper with a wooden lid for heating water and a mangle for wringing out the washing. On the table, rabbit pie is being prepared.
