dressings; plain and fish scale tiled roofs. West range: single storey range
of 6 stables, now workshops; plank doors and single and 2-light casement windows;

3 plank doors in chamfered surrounds and under relieving arches; to the left is
a single storey 2 bay stable range; to the right are 3 coach-houses with
chamfered, depressed arch surrounds. East range: to the north are 3 coach-

arch carriageway, gables to all 4 sides above and a central clock tower with a
tiled base and a louvred lantern surmounted by an ogee dome; to the south'is a
single storey range with three 2-light casement windows. A tall rubble quadrant
wall then joins the east range to a 4-centred archway which has, on the south
side, a further quadrant wall with a single storey dairy built against it, which
returns to the north east corner of the house. Across the centre of the yard is
a freestanding range of buildings. In the centre is an octagonal game larder:
2-light casement windows to each elevation; plank door under a Y-tracery window;
octagonal louvred lantern and plain tiled roof. Flanking the larder are single
storey workshop buildings with hipped roofs and to the west is a former
brewhouse or gasworks: square 2 storey tower at the west end, hipped roof and
large octagonal louvred lantern, three 2-light casement windows, clustered
