SE 26 SE (west side, off)
1/123 Stables and barn
approximately 50 metres
15.3.66 south-west of Cayton Hall
(formerly listed as
'Stables at Cayton Hall',
barn formerly listed with
the pigeoncote (qv))


Stables and barn. Stables-dated 1726, barn dated 1750 and linking range
late C18. Stables for William Mitchell, the barn and linking range probably
for John Messenger. Coursed squared gritstone and cobble, graduated stone
slate roofs. The 1726 block is of 2 storeys and 2 bays, extended by 2 bays
to right and 5 bay to left; the 3-bay barn projects at right-angles, left.
Magnesian limestone quoins to 1726 block; gritstone quoins far right and to
barn. Stable range: board door between bays 6 and 7 has long and short
jambstones and chamfered panel with an arched recess above with the
inscription, "Wm. Mit / chell / 1726". Flanking and first-floor windows are
square, with plain stone surrounds, 8-pane side-siding sashes to ground
floor, board doors to first floor. The quoins rise to just below eaves
height to left but have only 5 courses to right; the 2 right-hand bays have
an identical facade and were probably added shortly after building work
began. Bays 1-5: 5 evenly spaced board doors in plain surrounds; a taller
round-arched doorway far right with raised keystone. First floor: boarded
square opening far left, three 8-pane windows to bays 2-3. Hipped roof to
right, adjoining the barn roof to left; a gabled dormer with clock face
and wooden bellcote with pyramid roof and weather-vane to bay 5, above the
round-arched doorway; short banded stack between bays 1 and 2. Barn: a
central segmental arch with quoined jambs and the date 1750 incised on the
two top stones. 2 tiers of slit vents to left; right bay obscured by
attached stable ranges. Interior not inspected at resurvey. Interior of
stable block: ground floor not examined at resurvey; the first floor, bays
2-5 is a long room with cross-braced roof trusses of reused timbers entered
at the north end from a stone stair opening from the round-arched-doorway;
the south wall has doorways to left and right; the wall between is plastered
and has the remains of a painted baldechon (drapery) similar to that in the
Hall (qv). The doorway to left leads into a room served by the end stack,
not seen at resurvey. The long room is thought to have been a chapel and
the inner room a vestry. N A Hudleston, Stainley and Cayton, 1956.
