Court House
SP 1539 SW 9/38

II* 25.8.60

Early C17; presumably contemporary with Old Campden Manor. Ashlar, with a Cotswold
stone roof, continuous moulded bands at first and second floor levels. A rectangular
range backing onto the street; the central area of the upper parts bearing in notibly.
3 storeys, 6 windows, 2, 3 and 4 light stone mullioned casements. Central flat arched
doorway and blocked 4-centred one to left. Four ridge stacks, the end ones paired,
set square, and decorated; the central ones taller, 2 of the shafted set diagonally
with moulded caps and enrichments.
East on Garden Front. This front shows both C18 and mid C19 alterations. Two C19
bays, one 2 storeyed and other mullion and transom windows. Two first floor sashes
with glazing bars. Large stone buttress.
Two storey extension on south end. The 'arrow-slit' vents in south gable. The
house is probably a conversion of the Old Manor stables after the house was destroyed
in the Civil War in 1645 when it was burnt to prevent it falling into the hands of
the Parliament.
