Listing Text


A lodge and stable of c1840, with later additions.

Reason for Listing

* Architectural: in spite of alterations, a good example of the robustly detailed Classical buildings designed for stable use and intended to serve well-to-do suburban houses;
* Group Value: with Greystoke, formerly Linden, the large house with which the lodge and stable is associated, and with the other listed buildings in Weston Road.


Weston Road was marked as the Via Julia on Cotterell's 1852 Plan of Bath; this was the name of one of the main Roman roads leading out from Aquae Sulis to South Wales. The smaller villas on the northern side of this stretch of the road were mostly built in the 1820s and 1830s; the later, larger, houses on the south side followed in the 1840s and 1850s, including the large house with which this lodge and stable is associated, now known as Greystoke, but formerly listed as Linden.


MATERIALS: limestone ashlar, hipped slate roofs with wide eaves and moulded stack to rear.

PLAN: three rectangular blocks with vertical joints between.
