6/63 Stables approx 45m west of
- the Old Farmhouse, Style Place


Stables. Probably C17, much altered in the mid or late C19 in more than one
phase. Brick, the south west range is red English bond brick, the south east
range is red and ochre-coloured Flemish bond brick; no roof covering, formerly

Plan: L-plan building comprising 2 ranges of stables of approximately the
same length. The south west range faces north east and the south east range
faces north west. Both ranges are single storey.

Exterior: The south west range is a single C19 phase and has a symmetrical
2:1:2-window front interrupted by doorways. The windows have segmental arch
heads and contain iron-framed casements with glazing bars. The doors and
their frames are missing. The roof is gable-ended to right. The south east
range is the result of at least two C19 phases. It includes an open-fronted
bay (presumably a cartshed) left of centre. Each side is a stable with a
doorway flanked by windows. The left doorway has an overlight and the windows
each side have glazing bars. The right doorway contains a plank door and the
windows each side are unglazed. The roof is gable-ended to left and hipped to
right. The right end wall includes a plain oak-framed window without glazing
bars. It is of indeterminate date but could be older than the C19.

Interior: Both ranges are open to the roof. The south west range roof is 6
bays, tie-beam trusses with queen struts. The tie-beams appear to be older
and are probably C17 but the rest of the roof is probably C19. The south east
range roof includes a 5-bay section of probably C17 date. It has been
underbuilt with brick but the wall plates show evidence of former timber-
framed walls. Tie-beam trusses with clasped side purlins.

According to local tradition these buildings housed the brewery dray horses.
They form part of an unusually complete group of C19 brewery and ancillary
buildings around the Old Farmhouse, Style Place (q.v.).
