Black Boy Stables and

1/10/76 listed as "Black Boy Stables"
Stables and outbuildings. Early C19, restored in late 1970's. Hammer-dressed
sandstone and Welsh slate roofs. Single-storey, 3-bay stable has central
boarded door flanked by square openings with flush lintels and projecting sills.
Set-back, 2-bay lean-to addition to left has dressed quoins, similar openings
and a monopitch roof (concealed to rear of left return by a short section of
flat-coped parapet). Later gabled addition to rear of left return. Detached,
square-plan building, to right of stable, was formerly embattled and known as
the "castle cabin".
The stables were built where coal wagons left the Black Boy and Brussleton Inclines
to join the horse-drawn system. The buildings were damaged by fire in 1985 and
were derelict and partly roofless at time of survey.
