Stables, Wormington Grange

(formerly listed as part of Wormington Grange and Stable block)


Stables and coach house, now store, workshop and accommodation.1826-27, by H. Hakewill for J.Gist. Limestone ashlar, darker to plinth; Sussex bond brickwork to rear of wings, with stone dressings; Welsh slate roof with wide projecting eaves. U-plan around three sides of courtyard, with projection to rear of central block housing harness room and accommodation. Picturesque Classical style.

One storey with attic, with lower wings flanking courtyard and two storey central block. Central elevation of 1:3:1-fenestration with moulded architraves to semi-circular tripartite windows flanking pedimented central block; latter has flat-arched throughway with impost bands continued as flanking upper plat band, first floor 3/6-pane sash flanked by 15-pane blind windows with flanking pilasters which rise to meet band beneath pediment, which is surmounted by square timber turret (housing clock) with blind circular dials to each face and pyramidal lead roof with weathervane. Outer wings
flanking courtyard each have vents set beneath two similar semi-circular arched windows flanking stable door with overlight set in moulded architrave and two sets of double doors.

Interior: loose boxes, boarded divisions with iron bars over and cast-iron hay racks survive in left-hand half of stables; complete rear tack room with harness pegs and simple stone fireplace with glazed cupboard over; to right of through-entry is accommodation for stable hands, with match-boarded panelling, stick-baluster stair and simple classical fireplace; fireplaces to first floor. The principal interest of the interior lies within its method of early fire-proof construction, with cast-iron columns to iron beams panned by brick jack arches with stone slate floor over to attic; arched brick diaphragm walls flank central bay; softwood queen-post roof with wrought-iron ties.

A fine composition, of significant constructional interest, which complements the house (qv) which Hakewill also remodelled for Gist.
