Brooms and Rodents

No I’m not getting ready for Halloween, these were seen at Washington Old Hall. When people were living there brooms were used and real rodents were seen daily. One woman said a mouse used to sit on the windowsill looking at her while she made bread.

The building as it stands today dates from the 17th century and originally housed the wealthy but in the latter part of the 18th century it became a tenement house for about 35 people. It was altered again in the late 19th century to house large families. People don’t live in it today but they do visit it.
