SJ 3404 WESTBURY C.P. WHITTON LANE (North-west side)

17/132 Stable block and coach house
- approximately 12 metres to
south-west of Whitton Hall

GV II

Stable block and coach house, now partly garaging. Circa 1756 re-
modelling of a C17 building; some C20 alterations. Red brick
incorporating timber framed core; plain tile roof. 5 bays. One
storey and attic. High plinth to north-west, toothed brick eaves
cornice, and parapeted gable ends; central octagonal wooden cupola
which has round-arched openings with impost blocks and keystones,
large square base, and ogee lead cap with wrought iron weathervane
[said to be inscribed "I.T., Esq., 1756" (probably the initials of
John Topp II)]. North-east front: 6 segmental-headed blind windows,
left-hand one is painted imitation; some inserted C20 wooden casements;
wooden forecourt gate post and gate attached to left; square posts
with chamfered corners and moulded tops; left-hand corner chamfered
up to attic level. Left-hand gable end: wooden 2-light attic case-
ment; pair of large boarded coach house doors with segmental head.
Stone mounting block attached to right. Rear has been partly re-
built in C20; boarded loft door to left; 2 pairs of large boarded
doors, left-hand C20 sliding and right-hand with depressed-arched head,
various small segmental-headed casements and boarded doors. Interior:
remains of C17 timber-framed building including framed wall between
first and second bays from north-west with part of a post and an angle
brace to north-east, and collar and cambered tie-beam roof with queen
struts and V-struts; truss between first and second bays from south-
east has honeycomb brickwork and was probably formerly an external
gable end; roof with pairs of staggered purlins. The gable end to
north-west has a straight joint to left and the south-west front has
a joint to right suggesting that the north-east and south-east
walls were rebuilt before the rest of the building. The framing
suggests that it was formerly a barn and the early C18 barn (q.v.) to
the west incorporates some reused timbers which might have come from
it. The stable block encloses the south-west side of the forecourt
to Whitton Hall (q.v.) and stands opposite the former service block
(q.v.). H.E. Forrest FLS, Some old Shropshire houses and their
owners (1924), p. 6.
