Rear view from courtyard -note the two semi-circular arch windows which cut across the floor level which runs above the horizontal window.  These windows may have been for a stairwell, but even so they are strangely placed.  the horizontal window supporting the brick wall above defies explanation!

View of the north wing entrance.

Look carefully to see the brick joint vertically on the left separating the oldest part of the house from the north wing.  Immediately at the top of the first floor window is another brick change.  originally the roof level of the cottage which was this oldest part of the house came down to the top of the window 9inside the ceiling slopes down to the window and there is a false roof space).
