Hilda Newman was a maid to Lady Coventry at the Worcestershire stately home of Croome Court in the 1930s. In her fascinating memoir of life below stairs (as well as glimpses from inside the big house), she reveals what it was like living and working in the 18th-century Neo-Palladian mansion surrounded by parkland landscaped by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.
