1316 : Texting The Maid

Bell 1 2 3 4 : 8 June 2015
We were visiting an old friend last night and I spotted this high on the kitchen wall. It had obviously been some kind of bell system for the use of the maid of work (long, long gone before my friend moved into the house). How times change : these days the Good Lady Wife just sends me a text when she wants a cup of tea making.

That is an amazing call box and it must have been a large house.
