# Capel Mair (not visited on tour) why was it built. What was its purpose?
# The Chapter House probably the finest in the UK, what happened here, why was it used as a coal shed?
#The Infirmary and the monks curse in 1539. Did the curse really exterminate the Mansel male heirs?
# The Mansel House, where’s it gone, why are its gateposts alone still standing?
# Why was the Orangery, the longest in the UK, constructed? Why does it have bulls skulls on the front elevation?
# Why were the oranges allowed to die after over 200 years of nurturing?
# Why does simple Ivy Cottage have such a superb architectural pine end?
