arched openings at either end. There are several openings in the front wall, facing
Werrington Park (house), these openings with granite surrounds have cills on the
inner side which are splayed downwards, in the form of a shoot.
Interior: The interior is undivided with no sign of any shelving. The roof is
constructed entirely of stone in the form of a barrel vault.
