Ground floor rooms with fine double hollow chamfered and fillet moulded beams (moulded mullioned window with hollow chamfer and triple bead). Along the outer rear central walls of this range is probably C14 crenellated and moulded beam with 2 arched service doorways, which may indicate that the surviving range was a cross-wing to en earlier hall, or may be a later insertion (an adjacent bay has been reconstructed late C20 from demolished medieval and C17-C18 buildings).
