30.3.66 metres to north-west of
West Wing at Thorp Arch
Hall (formerly listed
as part of Thorp Arch
Hall and stable wing)
Outbuilding. c1750, altered C19 and C20. Probably by John Carr for William
Gossip. Coursed magnesian limestone, stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 x 1
bays. Large quoins. East side facing courtyard to rear of Thorp Arch Hall
(q.v.): 3 C20 casements in C19 chamfered ashlar surrounds beneath 3 C20
casements in plain openings; eaves band, moulded gable copings; truncated end
stack on left and short, corniced ridge stack to right of centre. Right
return: casement inserted below pedimented gable with blind Diocletian window
in tympanum. Left return: original doorway with deep lintel; matching gable.
Interior; altered; later roof trusses. 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.
