In the 1840s the Great Hall was radically altered. Heavy oak door-cases were installed, a new ceiling with huge wooden pendants was fitted and these stained glass windows dating from 1450 to the 19th century were added. Today the glass creates beautiful patterns on the walls and floor in the afternoon sunlight.
A stained glass panel showing the Victorian arms of Wyndham quartering Scrope and Tiptoft impaling Bacon, set in a continental surround. There is also a Swiss panel of 1603 depicting the story of the dying Scylurus and his sons, and dedicated to Caspar Melchior and Hans Jacob. Both are set in Victorian diaper fields.
