(formerly listed as College
21.7.80 Stables)


Stables. Dated 1867 below the clock on the south side of the tower
by P.C. Hardwick for F.H. Goldsmid. French Renaissance style
(some C20 rebuilding in the same style). Ashlar; red tile roof
tiling; ashlar stacks. Rectangular plan arranged around a large
stableyard with opposing entrances on the north and south sides.
1 1/2 and single storey. Symmetrical roadside front with single stage
tower over the entrance. 1:2:tower:2:1-windowed front with gables
projecting forwards slightly to right and left with alternate
punch-dressed and plain rusticated quoins. Twelve-pane sashes
within moulded lugged architraves and moulded keystones to the
ground floor of the projecting gables. The keystones overlie a
band which is continued as far as the entrance arch. C20 three-
light casement with concrete lintel to the right of the left-hand
gable. Cross-mullioned casements in the form of the half dormers
with triangular pediments to the first floor. Central double,
panelled doors (ramped down at the centre) within a tall moulded
round-headed archway with horse's head in the position of the
keystone, flanked by festoons; pilasters with alternate plain and
punch dressed rustication either side; single patera above each
pilaster; triangular pediment. Rusticated quoins to tower; clock
on the north and south faces of the tower with foliate decoration
on the spandrels and broken segmental pediments with a bust at the
top and foliate decoration within the pediment. Two-light
casements with moulded and lugged architraves and segmental
pediments (matching those over the clocks) to the side walls of the
tower. Steeply-pitched hipped roof which splays out slightly at
the bottom with oval Baroque-shaped lucarnes on each side;
octagonal cupola with weathervane at the apex. The south face of
the tower and the entrance below matches the roadside front: 2-
light casements with horizontal glazing bars either side; 3 cross-
mullioned half dormers with triangular pediments to the first
floor; 4 small Baroque-shaped lucarnes to the roof either side of
the tower; part-glazed doors to the ground floor. Two almost
Tudor-arched double-width openings with moulded keystones to the
returns now with plank infill containing single-width plank
doorways and windows. Single-light half dormers to the first
floor. The southern entrance to the stableyard is similar to the
northern entrance but has a moulded keystone with wheat ear
decoration in the spandrels; triangular pediment. Two pairs of
segmental-headed sashes with moulded and lugged architraves with
moulded keystones divided by pilasters with alternate punch-dressed
and plain rustications. Inner side of stableyard: two almost
Tudor-arched double-width openings with part-glazed plank infill;
part-glazed doors and tall 2-light casements with horizontal
glazing bars. Hipped roofing with decorative zig-zags and bands of
tiling with sprocketed ridge tiling.
