window with gabled chamber over. Interior: spere truss has solid screens
between posts and side walls. Central base-cruck truss has double tie-
beams clasping the roof plates, and an upper crown-post roof. Cross-wings
added early C15 replacing earlier appendages to the hall. Each has a small
annexe to the west and is of two bays with a central tie-beam truss and
intermediate arch-braced collar-beam truss. Two ogee-headed service door-
ways open into the south wing. The chapel block was added to the east end
of the north cross-wing c1500. It has a full-height chapel to the east
and a western half of two storeys. The kitchen block, adjoining the south-
west corner of the south cross-wing, is late C16 with C17 alterations.
The gatehouse is probably late C16 and closes the east side of the courtyard.
It is jettied and has close-studding, with lozenge panels to the upper part
of the first floor. A large brick chimney stack projects from its south
gable wall. The building is discussed and illustrated in detail in Jones,
