HOXNE OAKLEY PARK
TM 17 NE
7/120 Stable Block
II

Stable court to Oakley Park. Circa 1825, probably by Sydney Smirke who
remodelled the house at this time for Sir Edward Kerrison. Red brick,
stuccoed and ashlar-lined. Slated roof. Quadrangular plan. One storey with
lofts. Symmetrical main front, facing south. To each side of the entrance
are 3 arched recesses above a plinth with V-jointed rustication. Plain end
piers. Entrance set slightly forward: flanking piers, semi-circular archway
with V-jointed rustication, original paired 3-panelled gates. In front of the
entrance piers are octagonal plinths about 2m high, presumably for sculpture.
All piers have a dentil course. Continuous moulded cornice; flat parapet,
also with cornice (damaged). Above the entrance is a square clock tower
supported by consoles, on a 2-stepped base. Each face has a keyed arched
opening containing a clock face and louvres. Pointed domed roof, all
stuccoed, with onion finial. To rear, a narrower archway with original paired
gates. Each side of courtyard has a central gable, 2 with matching arched
recesses below. Ground floor windows altered, first floor 2-light casements
mostly intact. Oakley Park stood immediately to the south east and was pulled
down in 1923-4.
