C18. These were built as the stables and coachhouse of Surrenden Dering.
These stand to the north of the site of the mansion and are now subdivided.
They form an L-block, of which the former stables are the south arm and the
former coachhouse the east arm. Two storeys red brick. Hipped tiled roof
with modillion eaves cornice. Dering windows with brick cambered head linings
above the round-headed lights, with keyblocks at the angles and in the centre
of the heads. In the centre of the stables is a tall round-headed carriage
archway through the building with a pediment over on each side. Also 2
elliptical-headed doorways, with fanlights of 3 lights and doors of 9 fielded panels and 2 tiny lead cupolas above the roof. Ground floor additions behind
to the west. The interior has the date 1856 in it, but this was probably the
date of the insertion of the loose-boxes. The coachhouse also has a similar archway in the centre of it, with a shaped Dutch gable over containing a
clock-face and a small wooden cupola on the roof behind this surmounted by a weather vane. On each side of the archway are 2 coachhouses with double doors
of 12 panels and 2 windows on the first floor above. The courtyard is paved
with stone paving.
