6/187 Stable block about
70 yards east of
Stanford Court


Stable block, now factory. Mid-C18 with mid-C20 alterations. Brick with
plain tiled hipped roof. U-plan. Two storeys with modillion eaves cornice.
Main south front: 7:1:7 bays; central bay breaks forward and is gabled;
blocked round-headed archway with inserted C20 door; 3-light first floor
casement and circular opening in gable apex with radiating glazing bars.
Flanking seven bays have round-headed archways on the ground floor (some
of which are either blocked or otherwise altered) and 9-pane sashes on
the first floor with gauged flat heads and ashlar keyblocks; (every
alternate window is apparently a C20 insertion). The north returns at
each end of the south front are of five bays and were originally of
similar design. The yard within has now been roofed and altered but the
elevations were also of similar arrangement to the external ones. Included
for group value. Close inspection not possible at time of resurvey (April 1985).
