triangular pediment with circular painted wooden clock in tympanum (hands
missing at time of survey). Central first-floor circular panel with
trompe-l'oeil window. Central round-arched carriageway with rusticated
reveals, impost blocks and raised keystone with moulded top. Pair
of probably C19 large 4 x 4 panelled wooden doors with wrought-iron
strap hinges and large C19 wrought-iron lamp bracket above. Pair of
blocked segmental-arched openings flanking entrance. Ground-floor
window in second bay from left has been cut down in the late C19 to
form a door. Return elevations with 3 first-floor and 2 ground-floor
windows; 2-and 3-light mullioned and transomed casements. Interior

Dentil brick eaves cornice and verges. Gauged-brick elliptical-arched
entrance in gabled break to north with impost bands and keystone,and
pair of large panelled doors. Similar entrance to south with round
archway and triangular pediment above. Shavington Hall was dated 1685.
It stood to the south-west of the stable block and was demolished in
1959. It had been altered in 1885-6 by Richard Norman Shaw and again
(internally) in 1903 by Ernest Newton. The late C19 restoration of
the stable block and the additions might be the work of Shaw. The
stable block still stands at the centre of a landscaped park with a
number of lakes. Shavington Gardens are not included on this list.
