Former coach house and stable block. Early C18 with C19 alterations. By Francis Smith of Warwick, for Sir Charles Pye. Red brick with some ashlar dressings and rusticated ashlar quoins of unequal length; hipped slate roof. PLAN: the northern most of a pair of monumental wings flanking a courtyard [the other wing is Clifton Hall (qv)]; the intention was to link these 2 service buildings with a principal house range to the east, but this plan was never effected. EXTERIOR: south elevation: 2 storeys with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportions to first floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows and eaves. 7 bays; casements and glazing bar sashes with gauged brick heads, raised keystones, -stone sills and aprons; the ground floor windows have wooden cross frames. Central doorway with moulded-and-cased architrave; swan neck pediment on console brackets containing the Pye coat of arms. West elevation 2 storeys with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportions to the first floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows and eaves. 5 bays, casements with gauged brick heads, raised keystones, stone sills and brick aprons. Central doorway with elaborately moulded architrave and semi-circular pediment and raised keystone. North elevation 2 large cart entrances with segment heads flanked by single blind openings and single altered doorways at the ends. Above four 2-light casement windows with to left a similar blind window and to the right an altered loft doorway. East elevation has central plain doorway flanked by 2 windows the outer one to right blind, and the inner one to left blind, the outer one to right enlarged into doorway. Above five 2-light casements. INTERIOR: retains its original plan with a central open court, 2 coach houses to the north and stabling to the east and west. Upper floors housed grooms and hay. The former coach house and stable block to Clifton Hall was in a derelict and dangerous condition at the time of the resurvey.
