Stable Block and
Tower, with part of
Kitchen Garden Wall
(Malshanger Castle


C16, early C19, mid C19. A connected structure of several dates, the main part being a
long narrow block (of stable and service wing ) of one storey, and attic (of the last
date ). The centre has a gable with an upper window above a 'Tudor' carriageway arch
(now filled), which on each are windows and doors. Tile roof, with gabled dormers
(with cills at eaves level). At the east end of the block is a tall octagonal
staircase tower (part of a gateway) which is the main surviving feature of a house
known to have been built by Archbishop Warham in the first years of the C16. It is in
red brickwork, English bond, with a crenellated top having a moulded stone coping;
there is a blocked doorway at mid-height and at the ground-floor a plain doorway with a
4-centred arch. At the west end of the block is a square 'gazebo' with an upper bay
window on brackets (early C19) with diagonal metal casements. On the south and north
faces of the main block are flint panels. Northwards from the west end there is a high
garden wall of red brickwork, the lower of the C16.
