found to be in good condition, thanks to previous description as the "entrance" in the description is the porters lodge (which has a nice cut BM on the right hand side!).

Took me ages to find this - so many angles and corners and buttresses! It's on a buttress at the N end of the roadside courtyard where the public entrance is (but not the main entrance which is N again). Look for the red postbox and it's in the long courtyard to the RHS
