The Kennels


Kennels and two cottages, now partly used as stables. Mid C19,
built for the Earl of Harrington and possibly designed by his
gardener William Barron, with later additions. Fled brick with
stone dressings and graduated slate roofs with decorative
bargeboarded eaves, and stone and brick ridge stacks to the
houses. Courtyard of buildings with brick wall to south and
single storey ranges to other sides, with two bay houses to
northern corners, of single storey plus attics. Eastern house
has a half hipped roof to eastern facade with a unusual open
pavilion attached to the northern corner. This has a curved
rendered wall to the back and five open horseshoe-shaped arches
on thin colonnettes to front plus a central twisted iron column
supporting a conical roof. South elevation of the house has a
central doorcase with flanking single light windows to east and
a recessed section with door and 2-light window to west, each
opening with rounded brick jambs and stone lintels with rounded
corners and head. Above to east there is a gabled dormer with
2-light window and to west there is a C20 addition with two
2-light windows. All windows have segment headed lights. Side
wings have three similar doorcases, each flanked by similar
2-light windows to either side. Central range has similar
openings with a central bowed section. Most of the windows in
this range have wooden latticed grids. Cottage to west end has
similar doorcases and windows but with no additions and no
pavilion. Concrete pens to front of some of northern range of
no interest.
