about this item

The household staff of Downton Abbey carries out their duties with effortless dignity, finesse and pride.

This recently recovered and fascinating staff handbook answers all of these questions and more.

Covering all the main positions of the Downton household--footman, lady's maid, housekeeper, groundsman and more--and with a general introduction for new members of staff from Carson the Butler, this book tells you everything you need to know about working below stairs in the grand estate of Downton Abbey.
