Life on the Estate

Hidden Histories is an exciting new project where new research will be used to inform the interpretation of the kitchens and servants’ quarters at Tatton Park in Cheshire.

The project will uncover collections and archives which relate to the personal histories of those who have lived and worked here and these personal histories will highlight what life was like for staff and servants in the mansion.

Our research will also look at the lifestyles of members of the Egerton family and some of their guests. Tatton Park was the backdrop to many magnificent country house parties and these events provide an opportunity to consider the contrasting life experiences at Tatton, from the family members who hosted the parties and their distinguished guests to the army of servants who made it possible.
