Dining Parlour
Returning back through the hallway, past the staircase, you enter the Great Parlour, which was renamed as the Dining Parlour in the seventeenth century. Today it looks like an extension to the Buck Hall because most of the dividing wall has fallen. The room was 40ft long by 21ft wide and at its south, the east was has also fallen and so gives a poor impression of the room's former size and splendour. Along the walls ran wainscoting and plaster panels on which were painted in oil a fine series of historical paintings.
