a fine octagonal hall leading to a late C18 dog-leg staircase with open string,
turned balusters and wreathed handrail. A massive staircase window at the
rear (now partially blocked to form a door to the 1857 extension) has cruck pieces
to the jambs, a round-head and pulvinated frieze with louvred leaf decoration.
Consoles support a broken pediment. Several Adam style fireplaces in situ.
