Cheese Press

Typically a cheese press would have been located at farms rather than outside the ‘big hoose’ for they wouldn’t have dreamed of making cheese so publicly.. There are two of them in these gardens – can you find them?

  1. Why was cheese made on the farms?

The one used by the castle is actually built into the wall at the stables.

There are various stone watering troughs scattered about the garden.   In the old days they would have had fresh water running into them continuously and overflowing to waste.

The cheese presses and troughs have been salvaged from various farms on the estate over the years.
