northern-most 2 bays of eastern range with ovolo-moulded cross beams, closely
spaced ovolo-moulded joists, and central carved boss consisting of a grotesque

ing with large broach stops, and C17 panelling. Some reused C17 panelling in
hall. Old panelled and boarded doors. East and south range have exposed wall
plates with closely-spaced peg holes which suggest that the former framing in
these walls was similar to that still surviving in the north front (i.e. closely-
spaced studs with middle rail).
