The narrow archery slots were uncovered during the conversion and date back to an earlier 11th Century building. These historical elements were incorporated into the design, and centuries old stone carvers’ initials were also left exposed. The conservation philosophy was to restore the historic fabric in such a way as to clearly differentiate between different periods of construction. The new additions like lift enclosures, handrails etc were to be seen.
