Coach house now outbuildings. Early C18. Marlstone ashlar; Welsh-slate roofs.
Single range. 2 storeys. Right section, with plinth and eaves band, has an
arcade of 4 segmental-arched entrances, now infilled with later walling and
openings. Range originally continued to right. To left, a lower section has a
similar plinth but has been reduced in height. It has a narrow doorway and 2
wider entrances separated by a circular stone pier. A second narrow doorway to
extreme left retains a segmental arch. The rear wall has a continuous band and
there are 3 segmental-arched windows to rear of the higher range, 2 now blocked.
Interior not inspected. The wall extends westwards as a retaining wall alongside
the lane and terminates with a flight of stone steps. Probably one of the
buildings of Ledwell Park, rebuilt early C18 for the Earl of Deloraine and
demolished c.1800.
