II

Stable block and coach house, now old peoples' home. Circa 1762-6,
probably by Sir William Chambers, with late C20 alterations. Red brick
with some grey sandstone ashlar dressings. Hipped plain tile roofs.
Rectangular courtyard plain with two ranges. L-shaped range to north
with pavilion (former coach house) in southern corner linked to main
block by courtyard wall. Two storeys. South-west front: pavilion to
left and end of L-shaped range to right, each with chamfered plinth,
raised brick quoins and dentil brick eaves cornice. Left-hand block
with integral brick stacks and two brick stacks on ridge of right-hand
range. Each of three bays; C20 small-paned metal casements (in imitation
of former glazing bar sashes) with stone cills and gauged-brick heads
with raised keystones. Round-arched ground-floor windows to left-hand
block. Each block has central window with moulded stone architrave,
pulvinated frieze and moulded cornice (the left-hand window was in the
process of being cut down to form a doorway at the time of survey - July
1986). Central gateway between blocks consisting short walls and gate piers
with chamfered stone plinths and moulded stone copings. 7-bay left-
hand return front of right-hand block; C20 casements in imitation of
sashes with stone cills and gauged-brick heads. Right-hand return front
of five bays. North-east (garden) front: Raised brick quoins. Brick
ridge stack off-centre to left and integral brick end stack to right.
Square wooden cupola to right consisting of round-arched openings with
moulded architraves and keys, and with clock and louvres to north-east;
corner piers supporting moulded cornice to tented lead cap with weathervane.
3:4 bays, right-hand part set back; C20 casements(replacing former glazing
bar sashes)with stone cills and gauged-brick heads with raised keystones.
Second ground-floor window from left with moulded architrave, pulvinated
frieze and moulded cornice. Round-arched entrance in second bay from
right (late C20 door and glazing) with large stone doorcase consisting
of moulded architrave with impost blocks and keystone, and flanking Tuscan
pilasters supporting full entablature. Opposed round-arched entrance
at rear. Brick courtyard wall with stone coping to north-west linking
the two blocks. Interior not inspected. Photographs (N.M.R.) show the
interior of the stables before alteration with moulded plaster cornices
andoctagonal oak posts. This was formerly the stable block and coach
house for Styche Hall (q.v.), certainly by William Chambers. Despite
the alterations this is still a fine and well-detailed example of a
large C18 stable block, and is particularly notable for its unusual
plan form.
