These signal bells are out side the butlers room of Tyntesfield.
One of the fascinating facts for me was that to build this vast house was less than a years profit from Lord Wraxall business interests.  Still at least now "we own it" through the NationalTrust and are able to enjoy it as well.

  3. It's very upstairs/downstairs. It's amazing to think of a house with so many butlers to answer every call.
