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.
