The inner wall is solid brick; the outer wall is timber framed with brick cladding below, and open timberwork above (post with 3 connecting rails). 2 doorways to ring from stable yard, the doors planked below, with strap hinges; two doorways to inner circle. Roof: curved common rafters and cambered collars to each pair. 20 horses could be exercised at a time and the grooms felt no dizziness whilst riding.
