This plan shows the lower ground level of the keep at Castle Rising. The entrance to the keep is through an enclosed stairway on the side. The stairway has typical Norman round arches with cushion capitals and reaches up to the first floor. Access to the ground floor is via two spiral staircases in the north-east and south-west corners. The ground floor has an east-west cross wall with a door at its mid point. The north half of the ground floor is subdivided by a series of arches and vaults that support the upper floor. The southern half of the ground floor has a series or arches to support the upper floor.
The Norman Lord William D'Albini built a new stone keep at Castle Rising.
