8/76 Stable block at Hotham



Stable block. 1769 on weather-vane, possibly by Thomas Atkinson. Coursed
rubble, Westmorland slate roof. U-shaped on plan with extension to rear
facade. 2-storey, 7-bay central section with 5-bay extension to rear,
flanked by 2-storey, 5-bay wings. Spinal range: bays arranged 2:3:2 with
central pedimented section breaking forward. Tall central carriage arch
with keystone and imposts rising through 2 storeys flanked by stable doors
beneath flat stone arches. Symmetrical outer sections each have tall
elliptically-arched carriage entrance with double doors, and board door
beneath flat stone arch, with lean-to glass roof at return of right end.
First floor: 6-pane sashes. Central broad ashlar pediment contains clock
face and re-located datestone "GMM 1683", and squat platform breaking
through roof above carries open cupola with ogee lead roof surmounted by
weather-vane bearing date. Side wings mirror one another and each has
central round-arched recess, that to left wing containing board door, that
to right wing blind, flanked by unequal 12-pane sashes and board doors
beneath flat stone arches. First floor: 6-pane sashes, some openings blind.
Hipped roofs. Gable ends each have Venetian window with Diocletian window
above. Extension to rear facade: 2 storeys, 5 bays. Board door in fourth
bay, and sashes with glazing bars. Blind upper storey. Early C20 garages
added to rear not of special interest. The datestone in the pediment has
been brought here from the demolished Manor House at North Cave belonging to
George Montgomery Metham, and has no relevance to the building history of
Hotham Hall. Pevsner N, Yorkshire: York and the East Riding, 1972.
