and stable wings)


Outbuilding. c1750, altered C19, Probably by John Carr for William Gossip.
Coursed magnesian limestone, Welsh slate roof. 1 storey, 3 x 1 bays; later
extension forming link to East Wing is not of special interest. Large
quoins, West side facing courtyard to rear of Thorp Arch Hall (q.v.): S
blind windows beneath eaves bandy moulded gable copings on left. Rear; door
with deep lintel flanked by casement windows beneath keyed lintels; inserted
garage door on left. Left return: later lean-to beneath pedimented gable
with blind Diocletian window in tympanum.
Interior:right end wall removed; 4 original roof trusses with twin-collared
principal rafters. The Diocletian motif is characteristic of James Paine who
corresponded with Gossip about the proposed house at Thorp Arch prior to the
involvement of John Carr; it is possible that the outbuildings are part of
some original scheme suggested by Paine although executed by Carr,
