Common, rebuilt in the eighteenth century, were backed by wall side of the main entrance; a chapel dedicated to St. George was built in the courtyard, probably at the end of the thirteenth century. The second enclosure was flanked by four towers and provided in its eastern part at least, discovered without buttress battlements with parapets on arches. Part of the battlements had been deleted in the fifteenth century or early sixteenth century, when the walls were raised and applied against them home and common.
