10/58 Riding School
approximately 25 metres
north-west of Settrington

Riding school. 1793 on rainwaterhead; later alteration. For Sir Mark and
Lady Henrietta Masterman Sykes. Finely tooled sandstone to front, dressed
sandstone to sides and rear; timber eaves course; slate roof. Single-storey
range of 7 bays, the centre bay of 1 1/2 storeys, on a plinth. Tall round-
headed carriage arch with imposts to centre bay contains double doors
beneath a lunette with glazing bars. Radial glazed oculus above. To end
right is a C20 folding garage door. The remaining bays form recessed blind
arcades containing small-pane lunettes with pivoting centre lights.
Pyramidal roof with ball finial to centre bay. The rest of the roof is M-
shaped, hipped to left. Interior: a pair of Doric columns support a lantern
over the centre bay. The magnificent double span roof is carried on pairs
of moulded king post trusses supported on the backs of the principals of 9
massive tie beams. An unusual survival in a substantially unaltered state
of an C18 Riding School, rare in this area, with a very fine roof.
