with considerable later restoration (probably in C19.) Ashlar. Old tiled
roof. Gable-ends with parapets and kneelers. Plinth. Canopied niche
(empty) over the garage doors. To west of the stables is a tall pointed
archway giving access to the north side of Belcombe Court. Probably late
medieval, and the original south archway from the neighbouring barn.
Random rubble with ashlar dressings. Plain chamfered arch of 2 orders
with dripmould over.

Belcombe Court forms an important group with the Temple, Stables, Barn,
Grotto and Cottage to the west.
