History

Mid C18 L-shaped stable/coach-house range associated with the C18 house and therefore probably by Samuel Turner of Whitchurch. Domesticised during mid C19 with some refenestration
and further added to in the early and late C20.

Exterior

2-storey in rendered brick, L-shaped, later extended to a T and enclosing 2 sides of a cobbled courtyard to the S. Shallow, hipped slate roofs with plain brick stacks, one to the SW range and 2 to the SE. The SE face originally symmetrical with central 3-bay entrance block, advanced with open pediment. Three one-and-a-half storey recessed arches with plain tympana and tripartite stone keys. 2 L-hand openings with large plain double doors. L bay blocked in nid C19 and given a 12-pane recessed window and a door to the R, again recessed. Modern door with 3-pane
rectangular fan. Above each arch, a squat 8-pane casement window. To L and R of central range, a central door with 12-pane sashes flanking as before. 2x9-pane sashes above. Modern single-storey SW range in 3 sections with pediment as before, though here with a blind oculus. Door and window arrangement as before. L part of central section and all of L section on ground floor rebuilt as modern garages with C20 wooden sliding doors and corrugated iron car-port attached infront.

An interesting and restrained service complex serving the C18 house and as such probably by Samuel Turner. Group value with the New Castle and the kitchen garden walls.
