Stable block. Mid/late C17, altered C19 and C20. Coursed limestone rubble, slate
roof, brick and stone ridge stacks. F-plan originally, now L plan. 2 storeys.
Surrounds 2 sides of a stable courtyard, with slightly longer range facing east.
Round-arched doorway to through passage at right end of longer range facing

3-light stone mullion and transom windows to ground floor, some with hood
moulds. Mostly 3-light stone mullioned windows to 1st floor. Windows to rear

short wing probably late C18 or early C19 projects to rear of range facing court
