The Castle Keep dominated the castle bailey. It housed, on the ground floor, a great vaulted storeroom and a fine late Norman chapel, and on the first and second floors two suites of accomodation. Each had a hall, or public room, a solar, or private room, and latrines. Access between floors was by the great spiral stairs in the eastern angles and from outside by an external stair to the second floor.
