Experience life as an eighteenth century dairy maid and piggery boy with dressing up costumes for children - and adults!
Step back in time with the Kenwood volunteers to learn more about what life was like for the staff who used to work on the Kenwood estate and how the maids would have made butter and cheese.
The dairy at Kenwood was built in the 1790s for Louisa, 2nd Countess of Mansfield as part of the property's working farm. Louisa had an interest in farming developments and worked hard to modernise the farm at Kenwood. As a result, the dairy was built over an ice house so it would stay cool in the summer. It was also located close to the piggery, so the milk and whey which came from cheese production process could be piped across and used for animal feed.
