Students will have to roll up their sleeves and get to work as they experience servant life at Lanyon. As Lanyon servants they will take part in daily chores and the annual spring clean - polishing brass ware, beating rugs, raking the gravel and washing clothes. How do these jobs compare with household tasks today?
