NOTES: The Post Room and the upstairs rooms located in Lollards'Tower, built in the 1430s, were originally intended as sleeping apartments. The central octagonal wooden post, after which the room is named, and the panelling were added in the 17th century. This, one of the many of the Palace buildings that suffered greatly from damage by fire and water during World War II, was restored by Seeley and Paget in the 1950s.
