First Floor

After the cramped conditions of Squibb’s scaffolding, the ladder and the mezzanine floor, the first floor felt like a huge open area. It was also light as we’d reached the height of the next set of lancet windows.

It duplicated the ground floor. The two halves of the tower were linked by a thick arched doorway with a heavy wooden door.
