12/07/72 Stable Block to No.8


Former stable, now partly converted to offices and partly to a
repair workshop. c1700. Red brick front wall, laid in English
Bond with dark headers; white brick rear; render to south
gable end. Old plaintiles; roof hipped at the north end,
gabled on the south.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 7 bays. A raised band between the
storeys. On the upper storey, 4 original cross windows with
square leaded panes remain; at the north end, 2 windows have
been replaced by late C19 sashes with vertical glazing-bars in
flush frames. In the 5th bay from the south the window has
been replaced by a large clock, brought from a tower by the
stable block at the former Ousden Hall: this has a small
gabled and bracketed roof above. On the ground storey all the
original openings have been blocked or altered: 2 early C19
windows have diamond leading and pointed Gothick heads. A
blocked dormer with hipped roof in the north slope of the
roof, and on the north ground storey one original 3-light
window with square-leaded panes and pintle hinges.
INTERIOR: mainly modernised, but the bay at the north end is
unrestored, with exposed timbering on the ground storey: a
large chamfered main beam with curved stops, joists set on
edge; the internal chimney-stack has an open fireplace with a
plain timber lintel.
