1/128 Former indoor riding school
- 10 metres south-west of Nutwell
Home Farm
- II*

Former indoor riding school, now a grain store. Built circa 1800, probably built
by William Phillips, for the 2nd Lord Heathfield, in conjunction with his stud
stable. It is possible that S P Cockerell, the architect of Nutwell Court, may
have had a hand in the design. Brick with gabled end roof, now of corrugated
asbestos. A huge single space (internally measuring 46m x 19m, ie 874 sq.m).
Exterior: overhanging eaves which at each end are combined with a cornice of lath
and plaster to form a pediment at gable, with a large lunette, with radial glazing bars. To either side, set high, 2 large cast iron lunettes and 3 occuli with brick surrounds, with cast-iron radial glazing bars. Entrance to west, with altered doorway.
Interior impressive single-span roof of 19 bays; roof trusses with principal
rafters, collar, segmental arch-brace, in 5 sections, king post and upper struts
set diagonally, and a passing brace extending from wall plates to king post.
