The east range of Stone Court is formed by the Great Hall, Great Stair, Screens Passage and associated service rooms. The Hall itself is presumed to be on the plan of that built by Bourchier in 1456, forming the core of his palace, or perhaps even a precursor of Bourchier’s hall. It has, however, been subject to continued phases of alteration and owes much of its present appearance to the major Phase 4A rebuilding. In particular, the west wall of the hall would appear to have been rebuilt at this stage.
