Rolling back the years at historic Saltram House
VISITORS to a Georgian house were transported back in time at a special event.
Saltram House in Plympton, home to the Parker family for nearly 300 years, opened its doors on Saturday for an historical recreation.
Visitors were able to discover more about life "below stairs" by joining in with activities including helping the servants with their chores and packing the family's belongings up for a trip to London.
The National Trust property still boasts its original contents, and promises to provide "a fascinating insight into country estate life throughout the centuries."

The weekend's event was just the latest in a string of acted-out scenes taking place at Saltram. During the half-day tours servants, from the steward to the housekeeper, are on hand to talk about their roles.
Tours through the domestic parts of the house will next take place every half an hour from 11am-3.30pm next Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3. The rest of the Palladian-style house will be reopened to the public next Saturday, March 9.
