5/2 Former stable approx.
- 10 metres to south-
west of Ightfield Hall
Stable, now store. Probably late C17 or C18 incorporating earlier
materials. Timber frame with red brick on brick plinth; red brick
gable end. Graded slate roof. Framing: large rectangular panels,
2 from sole plate to wall plate. 2 framed bays. One storey and loft.
North-east front: 4-pane loft window to right. Pair of central raised
ground-floor windows, of one and 2 lights. Boarded doors to left and
right. Left-hand gable end: 2-light attic wooden casement and 2 small
ground-floor openings to left. Truss with collar, cut-through tie-
beam with moulded lower edge, probably early C19 brick infill and pair
of small dovecote openings in apex. Probably reused right-hand corner
post with hewn bracket. Right-hand gable end with collar and tie-
beam truss. Interior: chamfered spine beam in left-hand ground-floor
room. Roof with pairs of purlins, straight wind braces and ridge piece.
The hewn corner post and moulded tie beam are probably of domestic origin,
possibly reused from a previous house on the site of the present Ightfield
Hall (q.v.), which is a brick building dating back to the late C17.
It is possible that the stable building was formerly a domestic building
itself but the type of framing appears to be too late. The building
stands adjacent to Ightfield Hall (q.v.), within a moated site.
