Fell upon this place on a life drawing venture. You wouldn’t imagine you’d find an old heritage place in urban Newmarket but there it is, right beside the motorway on Gillies.Wandered around for a while,imagining life without showers and getting creeped out by so many old things and doors suddenly banging shut behind me!
The ball room, life drawing setting for that day.
The drawing room, where ladies would withdraws and knit and sew and have tea.
What girls bedrooms looked like back in the day ( I was bit creeped out by the dolls recalling horror-filled Chucky!)
The maid’s room ( Mr. Buckland’s second wife was their former maid apparently).
The boys room, bit less private than the girls.
The bath.The water pipes have been added over time.
And this would be my favorite place in any era!
