HOXNE OAKLEY PARK
TM 17 NE
7/120 Stable Block
Stable court to Oakley Park. Circa 1825, probably by Sydney Smirke who
remodelled the house at this time for Sir Edward Kerrison. Red brick,
stuccoed and ashlar-lined. Slated roof. Quadrangular plan. One storey with
lofts. Symmetrical main front, facing south. To each side of the entrance
are 3 arched recesses above a plinth with V-jointed rustication. Plain end
piers. Entrance set slightly forward: flanking piers, semi-circular archway
with V-jointed rustication, original paired 3-panelled gates. In front of the
entrance piers are octagonal plinths about 2m high, presumably for sculpture.
All piers have a dentil course. Continuous moulded cornice; flat parapet,
also with cornice (damaged). Above the entrance is a square clock tower
supported by consoles, on a 2-stepped base. Each face has a keyed arched
opening containing a clock face and louvres. Pointed domed roof, all
stuccoed, with onion finial. To rear, a narrower archway with original paired
gates. Each side of courtyard has a central gable, 2 with matching arched
recesses below. Ground floor windows altered, first floor 2-light casements
mostly intact. Oakley Park stood immediately to the south east and was pulled
down in 1923-4.
