Grooves recessed into walls of SE bedroom on first floor were presumably intended to take battens for panelling; they are however distinguishable from the more recent battens which are spaced differently. Rounded openings were revealed by removal of harling during repairs to W wall of W wing in May 1990; owners stated that original arched openings were revealed in both wings.
Info from Dr J Close-Brooks to RCAHMS, May 1990.
