Photo taken on 04/03/2013. The ground floor housed a cafe and small shop, whilst the first floor was accessed as part of a guided tour of the building. This view shows three phases of building. The stair tower was added to the building in the second half of the 16th century and the rooms either side were added in the 17th century. Not the change in angle of the roof indicating where the original building ends and the additions begin.
