An underground chamber to rear of No 5, probably used for storage and probably

flight of steps leads down to rectangular space with walls of limestone masonry
and brick barrel vaulted roof [Flemish bond]; round-headed arches in centre of
each long wall and in rear wall to west; a flight of steps leads down to a further
depth from the latter. Iron rings in wall. Possibly used as a food store for
Cheam School when it occupied Whitehall.
