Former pavilion block, now a farm building. c. 1700 with C19 alterations.

the NW pavilion in the forecourt of Newbold Verdon Hall. Originally a tall
2 storey block except for a 2 storey bay at the north end, but now 2 storey
throughout due to inserted C19 floor, also with floored loft in roof space.
North and south walls have 2 large high level windows and the east and west
walls have 3 similar windows, all with rubbed brick flat arches, all now
wholly or partly blocked in brick. The north wall has a C19 inserted cart
entry with segmental arch cutting into the lower courses of the blocked
windows above, The south wall has a pair of inserted, now blocked, windows
with timber lintels to each floor, and a window to either side of a central
chimney breast which partly survives within on both floors. At the south
end of the west wall, an original doorway framed with reused early C17
moulded jamb and lintel stones, now blocked and another blocked inserted
doorway in the centre of the wall. Internally, 4 bays with evidence of
brick cross partition under north truss, which formerly separated the 2
storey north bay. Evidence of original stairs to loft. Other trusses have
stopped chamfered principals exposed below ceiling and cambered collars
within the loft, It forms part of an important group with the house and
other pavilions in the forecourt.
