Cockpit. Circa 1811, re-erected and restored 1979. Brick with tiled pyramidal
roof. Square plan. One storey, two entrances with semi-elliptical heads,
the roof is capped by a ball finial. Interior: complex roof structure,
basically a central king-post with raking struts supporting rafters. The
walls are entirely new, using reclaimed C19 bricks; the main interest lies
in the extremely fine roof structure which was dismantled in 1976.
