3/120 Nos. 1, 2 and 3, The

listed as Court House,
Stable block and Coach house, latterly garaging, now divided into 3 houses.
Circa 1822-8, by Sir John Soane. Painted brick. Hipped graded slate roofs
with lead flats. Central hipped-roofed 3-bay block with set-back 2-bay links to
flanking hipped-roofed 2-bay pavilions. 2 storeys. Central painted stone
stack consisting of 4 square shafts with continuous base and cornice, separate
tapered square chimneypots and clock to front. Painted stone stacks over
end pavilions consisting of 2 square shafts with round-arched link, continuous
base and cornice, and separate tapered square chimneypots. 1:2:3:2:1 bays;
round-arched margin-light glazing bar sashes. Ground-floor C20 three-light
casements to link blocks, replacing former garage doorways (see lintels and
straight joints in brickwork beneath). Central round-arched entrance with C20
glazed doorway and round-arched doorway in right-hand pavilion also with C20
glazed door. Left-hand pavilion with C20 glazed door in round-arched doorway to
right and blind round-arched doorway to left. Left-and right-hand return fronts
of 2 bays. One storey pyramidal-roofed blocks at rear of end pavilions with round-
arched 3-light wooden casements, that in left-hand pavilion with small-paned
tympanum. Interiors not inspected. This was formerly the stable block and coach
house for Pell Wall (q.v.). The links were formerly only of one storey. The
first-floor was added to the left-hand link c.1900 and to the right-hand link
in the late C19 (see old photographs and 1967 sale documents). Soane's drawings
of the former service block (now rebuilt) at Pell Wall show a stack similar to
those on the outer pavilions of the stable block, with 2 square shafts connected
by a round arch. This stable block and coach house was replaced by a new building
to the south (q.v.) in 1902. Couzins/Powney Collection and National Motor
Museum, c.1911 photograph.
