The timber ceiling in the Chapter House is thought to date from around 1500. It has moulded beams and joists in a chequerboard pattern. It is possible that this roof has been re-used from elsewhere. After the dissolution the Chapter House seems to have been used as a kind of decorative garden pavilion for the adjacent abbot's private rooms, which were used by the Barker family as a mansion. This was badly damaged by a fire in the Civil War.
