Nursery Heritage Room

This Heritage Room at Castle Leslie is bright and cheery room and has been the happy headquarters for three generations of Castle Leslie children. The first Leslie children to use the schoolroom can be seen today as the little carved heads over the pink stone arches of the entrance porch.

Nursery Heritage Room at Castle Leslie

A single bell can be seen just outside the room. This was the architect’s bright idea. He realised that the dinner gong would not be heard at this height, and certainly not above the uproar of children. The bell would tinkle a kind welcome for lunch. But it also rang furiously when the noise emanating from the room proved disturbing, or otherwise inconvenienced the adults below. The bell still works today.
