26.4.57 Old Stable Block
C16, C17, early C19. A 2-storeyed main block with a south-east front, having north of
the west end (forming less than a right-angle) a single-storeyed wing with a small
2-storeyed crosswing at its north end (both of the last date). The generally
symmetrical form of the main elevation is emphasised by a raised centre with a gable,
surmounted by an open bell turret. The west side has 3 windows and a central doorway,
the east has 2 high windows. Tiled roofs, brick dentil eaves, weather-boarded gabled
with a clock face; above this an open wooden arched frame supporting a flat roof.
Walling is in red brickwork, English bond, with stone dressings including rusticated
flush quoins and flat arches, and a small moulded doorway with a 4-centred arch. The
east gable has a similar but larger doorway. The later extension (and the west gable
of the main block) has brick dentils to the verge, and to a second-floor string which
rises in the middle as a hood-mould, the openings have rubbed flat arches, and there is
a slightly-projecting gabled entrance in the centre. All windows are casements, with
diagonal leaded lights.
