I know that in the 1930s my grandmother had a someone come in several times a week to do "the rough", which I took to mean the heavy washing such as bedding. Probably a local woman came to Beckfoot to do the washing and ironing. Was there a scullery with a copper?
At that period I don't think people washed clothing after only one or two wearings like we do today, unless it got especially dirty. Therefore not the amount of washing we have today.
