Visitors can take the lift or use the stairs used by the family and their servants on more everyday occasions. At the top is another of Beningbrough's axial corridors, which provides a fine view of the Hall from above. The wrought-iron grilles are probably by the leading Derbyshire blacksmith, Robert Bakewell.
