The narrow, three-storeyed tower at Halloughton Manor House was built by a prebend of nearby Southwell Minster. The ground floor has two narrow lancets and was probably used for storage. The first floor was approached by a staircase, partly external, rising from an attached hall, replaced by the present two-storeyed timber-framed structure of between 1580 and 1630. This chamber is lit by a lancet and a two two-light trefoiled window of mid-fourteenth-century date. As it shows no evidence of insertion, it probably identifies the period of construction. The approach to the private chambers above was by a narrow mural stair. Neither of the upper rooms were heated. (Emery)
