The Library built in 1692-94 possibly to design of Dean Aldrich; it has been
refaced in Clipsham stone. The master mason was John Townesend, Thomas
Heughes the carpenter and the joiners Thomas Minn, senior and junior. The
eagles on the pediment, the keystones and the statues in niches on West side
were made by J Vanderstien. The ground floor had an open loggia but was
enclosed by C R Cockerell in 1843. The interior was altered in 1756 when
a plaster ceiling was made by Thomas Roberts.
