The Great Hall is best known for its collection of commemorative Horseshoes donated by Peers of the Realm. It is also decorated with a range of 12th century sculptures. Above the columns are six musicians, each playing a different instrument. They are made of local stone from Clipsham and although damaged, they are of superb quality. They are believed to have been carved by masons who had worked at Canterbury Cathedral. « less
