Lean-to C19 porch in angle with segmental-headed half-glazed door. Left-hand

northern-most 2 bays of eastern range with ovolo-moulded cross beams, closely

ing with large broach stops, and C17 panelling. Some reused C17 panelling in
hall. Old panelled and boarded doors. East and south range have exposed wall

these walls was similar to that still surviving in the north front (i.e. closely-
spaced studs with middle rail).
