4 The cloisters were N of the Church and did not adjoin the walls of the transept and choir as usual, there being an open space in between. A covered passage gave access to the church. On the E alley was what probably represented the chapter house with traces of a stone bench. A further chamber joined this. On the W side were two rooms, of which the upper was a dormitory. The N side adjoined the refectory, which extended the entire length of the cloisters. Adjoining it was a passage in the direction of the inner gatehouse.
