(Formerly Listed as:

Farm)

GV II

Stable range. Early C19 (incorporating a stone dated 1817),
using stone from the C13 Abbey of Dieu l'Acres. Coursed and
squared stone with slate roofs.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 4-window range. 3 double doors to right,
2 doors with flanking windows to left, in pointed-arched
openings made from, or cut in imitation of, abbey stonework.
Upper windows similar, the double doors to the right inserted
in former window space, said once to have been French doors to
balcony of former ballroom within. Gable end richly ornamented
with abbey fragments, incorporating ogee window tracery,
fragments of vaulting ribs and other carved stone, arranged in
a symmetrical pattern.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The building forms a group with the byre and barn (qv) and E
stable range of Dieu-la-Cres farm (qv) together with the
farmhouse (qv) and represents an important example of the
reuse of old building stone, arranged according to a definite
aesthetic, as a type of antiquarianism.

1862-).
