Welbeck Estate
Office and attached

stable yard

Outbuildings, c.1858, incorporating some medieval walling. Tooled stone with
tooled-and-margined quoins and dressings; Welsh slate roofs. Embattled screen
wall runs north from west end of C19 wing attached to castle gatehouse, returning
east and then south; various outbuildings back onto wall: flat-roofed single-
storey office adjacent to wing, L-plan stable block at north-west corner; lower
wall with arched coping links small gabled building with east end of stable.
Boarded doors and double doors, 1- and 2-light windows with small-paned

Medieval masonry is visible externally on the western screen wall; the stable
yard perpetuates the 'Yethouse Court' described in an account of the castle
in 'The Booke of Bothoole Baronye' (1576); the Ogle tower stood at its north-
west corner.
