Similar 5-light window with transom lights to left and 3-light window to

light cross-mullioned window to left and partly blocked 3-light window and
further 3-light window at mezzanine level to right. Ground floor: one 5-

addition to right. Interior reveals chamfered ceiling beams and a section
of C17 panelling in main room. (RCHM, Vol 3, p 78).
