This genteel room served as the ladies and gents cloakrooms when Fairfax House was in use as a cinema. The fireplace is not original to the house; it was brought here from Methley Hall. Note the secretaire (writing table), which dates to 1760. It is made of mahogany and, unusually, is composed of three separate sections. The top two laticed levels lift off individually, perhaps to make it easier to move from place to place.
