Former coach house and stables, partly under conversion to private
house at time of survey (August 1985). Probably early C18 (rear

later C18. Rubble stone, faced in coursed and dressed stone on
plinth with alternating flush quoins, mostly stone slate roof with
some slate to west, and with slates removed on west end block,
still in grounds of Ampney Park. Coach house to left projects

The whole has tall ground floor with wide moulded cornice and with

segmental headed carriage arches to each bay, all double timber
doors probably of C19. First floor has 3 leaded 2-light stone
mullions with flush surrounds; 3 small blind single lights to

side of stable has four 2-light stone mullion and transoms with
iron casements, and 6-panel door with fanlight between windows one
