Window (W1) and cill in the north west end of the first floor South Corridor (adjacent to door to South Annexe to Entrance Hall). A sash window comprised of nine over six panes in a wooden frame. The window frame is plain. Replacement sections on both sides of the frame. On the left-hand side section of the frame there is a hole with a small push button. This may have been part of the historic locking system for the windows or shutters, or the sash weights. Holes have been drilled in the upper sash to fit two modern barrel security stops on each side of the frame (two barrel stops present). There is an older quadrant lever arm sash fastener on the centre of the meeting rail. The timber window cill fills the window reveal. A small metal plate on the cill housed a bolt on the shutters, used to hold the shutters in place.Painted white.
