Everyday life - childhood, schooldays, washing and cooking and cleaning - in a fine late 18th-century (Georgian) house. Blaise Castle Estate, the site of an Iron Age settlement and a Roman garrison, is now surrounded by suburban Bristol; it was once the home of the Harford family. John Harford has the present house built in the 1790s, and engaged Humphry Repton to landscape his garden. Repton's Red Book for Blaise is now one of the museum's treasures, alongside children's toys, mangles and washtubs, and elegant Victorian gowns.|
