Full Description

The forecourt of the Old Hall forms the south side of a courtyard, and to the south-west an entrance leads into the park alongside a massive retaining wall which rises to a height of c.5m at its southern end, where it is buttressed. On the south-east side of the courtyard there is another gateway with obelisks which leads to a drive running to the stables. The east side of the courtyard is formed by the wall of the Hall's West Court. A drawing of 17th century date shows the courtyard with the Old Hall and the adjacent entrance with obelisks.
