Kitchen and Laundry

Kitchen laundry gallery with mangle

This gallery inspires many comments from visitors along the lines of 'my mother/grandmother had one of those' or even 'I had one of those'!

Among the dolly tubs, mangles, ranges and cookers there are a few unusual items including a still for making illicit alcohol, and a wooden sink.

There is also a cloam oven - found in many old Devon kitchesn, which was heated up by a fire within. When hot, the fire was raked out and a bread mix put in and the door sealed up with clay.
