Beyond the fig trees is the Great Hall, ravaged under Cromwell and rebuilt by Archbishop Juxon after 1660 {?error 1663?] in a gothic survival style ("a new old-fashioned hall", Pepys called it).
From their botanical garden in Lambeth, on the south bank of the Thames, he and his son, John, introduced many plants into English gardens that have become part of the modern gardener’s repertory
During the Civil War, damage was so serious that when Archbishop Juxon was reinstated in 1660 he found ’ a heap of ruins’ and spent £10,000 on rebuilding it
