Cogan House (now Zizzi's restaurant) (page 5 - upstairs)

Moving upstairs to the first floor. Above you can se the stairway and the first floor. If you turn round you can see a wonderful Priest's Hole (photo below) used to hide from religious persecution. The stairs down are behind the open door.
 

 

Looking up at the oak ceiling - apparently a King Post (the central post which supports the roof) remains in the attic, away from view.


Below, a nice joint, and the beautiful old door to the kitchen.

Below: above the front part of the building are some store rooms. Then we have more stairs (see below) up to the attic, which I was not allowed to see, as apparently the floors are not too safe!
