There Will Always Be An England

155-year old (and still functioning) mousetrap

The following email was sent one morning early last month by the Assistant Curator of the Museum of English Rural Life to the staff.

“There appears to be a dead mouse in this mousetrap, which is not described as being there on the database.”

Ick. But the trap itself is nicer than our modern metal ones.
But Lady Anne is right, the stench!
