Flanking stacks. In 1982 the stable block was restored by Eric Throssell,
FRIBA, to its original appearance as shown in the engraving by Henry
Winstanley dated 1680. This involved reconstructing the doorcase and
ground floor windows which had been altered C18, C19. It is thought
that the original doorcase came from the early C17 house, and had been
moved here when Tythrop was remodelled c1660-1680.
