approx. 20m north-east
of Odstone Hill


Stables and barn. Late C18. Red brick with slate roof. L-shaped
plan; stables aligned roughly north-south with barn to the north-west
aligned east-west. East front: Blind except for a few small inserted
windows. Central pedimented break with cupola and lower wings
terminating in a pair of pedimented gables, the right hand one is the end
of the barn, it was altered when the barn was re-roofed in the late
C19. Much of this front is obscured by later farmbuildings. West
front: 2 storeys with dentilled eaves and central break rising higher
than the main building with a pedimented gable containing an open
lunette. Below is a segmental-headed door flanked by a pair of
circular openings. To the right of this centrepiece are 5 segmental
arched doorways punctuated by circular openings at the level of the
arches; above each door is a loft opening with boarded hatch. To the
left the range has been mutilated to some extent but retains two loft
openings. The barn is at right angles to the left. Full height barn
doors survive to right of centre; to the left of these and in front of
the barn is a single-storey lean-to building with 5 doorways. This was
probably an additional stable block.
