The building dates back to the end of the 15C; the great hall, with its sculpted enclosure, has changed considerably since it was built. Bulwer-Lytton, fantasy author, transformed it into a gothic masterpiece with cupola; this style can be seen in the chimney towers, painted panels and stained glass windows in the large ceremonial room.
