2. Group of ecclesiastical, ceremonial, defensive and residential: buildings of varying periods. At north-west corner the Water or Lollards' Tower 1435, of Kentish Rag with ashlar quoins and a brick turret; the C17 Land's Tower added in similar material (but with some flint) to the south. East of this the C13 chapel, Reigate stone with Purbeck dressings, and its earlier C15 crypt with some original plaster. To the east, the residential apartments of circa 1835 in collegiate gothic style. South-west of these the guardroom, a circa 1835 rebuilding of a C14 building which retains much original woodwork in the roof. West of this the courtyard, and south of the courtyard the Great Hall (now library) 1660-63, a building of mixed styles whose baroque elevations of red brick and Portland stone frame late-gothic windows and whose hammer beam roof uses entirely classical decoration. To the south-west, Morton's Gatehouse and tower of circa 1490. Red brick with blue diapering and stone dressings. Good interior woodwork including a panelled room covered with C17 wall paintings.
