Other structures noted in the medieval accounts include kitchen, grange, bovaria, byre, stable, henhouse, herringhouse, farina, dovecot and a bridge, presumably over the moat. For much of the 14th century it was in hand and used for the monks' recreation; but thereafter it was leased or granted out, sometimes to retired priors.
