4/135 Stables 15 metres west of
Maperton House
(formerly listed with Manor House)

Stable block. Probably 1876. Cary stone cut and squared, ashlar dressings; plain clay tile roof over stone slate base
courses, west side, Welsh slates to east side, between coped gables. Two storeys, 7-bay west elevation; bays 2 and 6
have gabled windows with ball finials to crowns; bays 3, 5 and 7 have 4-pane sash windows set in architraves; moulded
doorway with flat hood bay 2, and to bay 3 a semi-circular archway, now blocked with early C20 stone 3-light window in
centre, and over this a later gable with leaded window: in centre of roof a clock-tower in C17 style, timber with lead
roof, octagonal plan; diamond clock faces to east and west under bell-hip roof with weathervane. On east side some
