Bakehouse and Stables
20 metres North of Jane
Austen's house


A range of buildings, bounding the rear courtyard, of L-shape. Early C19.
Mainly brick walls in Flemish bond, but some boarding. Plain tiled roof.
A single-storeyed irregular group, in one block: at one end the bakehouse/
laundry, a hay-store, then a taller corner (coachhouse?) block, and a longer
lower arm (stables) which ends as a gable facing the roadway. Casements.
Plain doors. The interior of the bakehouse has a large oven and (clothes)
boiler. Note: The extent of this range, together with the size of the house,
suggests that it might have been an inn.
