Description

The plan shows the second-floor as it usually appears but the forebuilding in the eastern corner has been sectioned to show the stairs as they rise through the levels. Thus at the base of the stairs the are planned at ground level, in the eastern corner the first-floor chapel and stairs are shown and they reach the second-floor by the well room. The rooms above the stairs at second-floor level have been ignored. The plan is partially annotated and the passages which are not shown are indicated.
