Mezzanine – Small Church Staircase

The door to the mezzanine is located on the first landing of the Small Church Staircase.

The length of the room stretches to the 1st floor’s Large Corridor. Did it extend across the corridor connecting with the mezzanines over the 4th Spare?
I am also researching on the storeroom(s) use. Was it a repository for the Rector of the Small Church or a pantry?

To give you an idea of the scale, the photo (below) shows fragments, after dismantling, of the mezzanines that spanned the Rastrelli Gallery.
