Of course, while the de Winters and friends were partying upstairs, Manderley's servants were having their own get-together "below-stairs". That's where the warren-like corridors and basement kitchen of the 16th-century Osterley House come in. A fake fire, food and crockery were added as props. Visit today (just a tube journey from central London) and you might also recognise its Tudor-era stable block - this is where Rebecca's cousin, Jack Favell, persuaded Mrs de Winter to try horse riding.
