From a drawing by Ivan Lapper of how Scarborough Castle might have looked around 1350, occupied and busy. The service buildings (stables, brewery, armoury, etc.) are shown around the walls of the inner bailey. The Great Hall has a raised roof along the two lines of posts whose bases remain, and the kitchen is separate but connected. One oddity is that the walls are entirely open at the ends of the ditch, which seems very unlikely.8
