Granary showing sleeper walls which supported the raised stone flagged floor, the space between these walls allowed under-floor air to circulate. At some time the spaces were packed with earth & rubble. The north end wall has been robbed away, but allows a section through the foundations to be seen. 26th May

South end of granary, looking north. The large stone on the right (with blue pad) was below the doorway. The area under turf on the right is still to be uncovered by those of you coming in the next few weeks, yippy! (27th May)
