NT 5476 3416 The collapse of a small part of the exterior west wall of Abbey House provided an opportunity to examine the interior structure of the wall. Work was undertaken on 22 February 2007. Structural remains were seen in the wall which may have been part of, or even pre-date, a square tower of medieval date which had been suggested during a building recording programme undertaken in 2002 (DES 2002, 1012).
