4/49 Stables and Granary.


Granary and Stables. Probably C18, but of markedly late C19 appearance.
Red brick with sandstone ashlar plinth and dressings, graded Westmorland
slate roofs. 'U' plan with yard to rear and 2 threshing floors to main
range. Large scale and Palladian in conception. North Front: Corner
pavilions and 3 storey main range; 1-1: threshing bay: 4 : threshing bay:
1-1 bays. The corner pavilions have tall attics to ridge height,
articulated by blind lunettes and oculi to outer faces above a bold
moulded cornice, and also corbelled dove landing ledges and entry holes
at eaves; pyramidal hipped roofs with weathervanes. The main range to
centre has 2 lower symmetrically placed open pedimented breaks with
arched entries to threshing floors, ashlar band at first floor cill level,
returned as impost to entries; 2 light windows, reduced proportions to
each floor and only 1:2:1 on second floor; dentilled eaves course below
moulded stone cornice, extended from cornice of pavilions; 3 louvred
hipped granary dormers to attic. The return wings are the same height
and approximately 4 bays deep. These commanding buildings are prominent
and excellently proportioned. There is a possibility that they were
designed for threshing machines with part of the upper floors used as a
maltings with dovecotes to the upper parts of the pavilions.
