Washern Grange



Said to date from circa 1632-1635, rebuilding of an earlier stable block
and incorporating a C14 barn which presumably belonged originally to the
Abbey. Partly demolished (West Range) in C18.
The unified overall treatment said to have been designed by the de Caux
brothers in the 1630s. Brick built with stone dressings, plinths, architraves,
keys, quoins, coping etc. English bond.
North front: 2-bay end pavilions with balustraded parapets and bull's-eye
windows over bar and transom casements (mostly lead glazing). Linked by
set back 7-bay arcade on banded piers; now blind except for central entrance
and four smaller openings; band and parapet over with six blind oculi above spandrels of
arcade parapet with medallion motif repeated inside courtyard (except over West
range - demolished but retaining arcade). Modern cottage in north-west
corner. South side has projecting coach-house with wide arched entrance and blind
oculi in spandrels, and open pediment treatment to gable; mounting block to left;
it projects to south with stone and flint chequerwork and brick block cornice.
The medieval barn forms the east range. Eight-bay arcade in pairs with three weathered
stone buttresses. Four doors. Centre left: good panelled doors, upper panels
curved. Stone imposts, keys and oculi (open) to parapet. Four rainwater pipes
with lead lions' heads. Tiled roof, coped verge to north, south gable end
twisted and warped. Six buttresses to east side.
Interior single span roof, some probably C18 mangers, stone lined walls and pitched
brick floor.
