Virtual Tour of Raglan Castle

The Pantry

All photographs Copyright 2006 by Jeffrey L. Thomas

Above: the Pantry can be seen in the middle of this photograph taken from the Pitched Stone Court.

The pantry was situated on the ground floor at the far end of the Pitched Stone Court. The inner wall of this suite of rooms has totally disappeared and only the outer wall remains standing. The foundations of the inner wall are on the courtyard side of what is now an open path linking the Kitchen Tower to the Buttery. The pantry itself was on the ground floor, lit by three cusped windows. A timber staircase would have given access to the cellar below. There were two storeys above the pantry. Apart from the narrow trefoil window and the fireplace close to the Kitchen Tower, the pantry is Tudor in date.
