HOLCOMBE ROGUS HOLCOMBE ROGUS
ST 01 NE
5/125 Stables and coach house
- approximately 1.5 metres east of
Holcombe Court
GV II
Stables and coach house. Mid C16, extensively refurbished in 1845 according to a
date stone. Local grey-coloured limestone rubble laid to rough courses; Beerstone
detail; slate roof.
Plan: L-shaped building forming 2 sides of a courtyard (a third side separately
listed with the dovecote (q.v) there). The long south-east facing front contains,
from left to right, coach house, office, coach house, grooms cottage and tack room.
Both the office and grooms cottage are heated by axial stacks. The stables project
forward in a crosswing a the right (north-east) end. 2 storeys throughout including
haylofts over the coach houses and stables.
Exterior: the main block has an irregular front. The gabled-centre bay breaks
forward a short distance and contains a wide segmental headed coach house doorway
with a hayloft loading hatch above with a hood. To left another similar coach house
with a C16 Beerstone Tudor arch doorway alongside and a C19 Tudor style stone-
mullioned 3-light window above. Next left another gabled bay, (the office) breaks
forward contains C19 Tudor windows and door and at the left end another coach house
doorway. To right of the central bay is a C16 Beerstone mullioned window containing
old rectangular panes of leaded glass. There is a stone mounting block in front.
Further right 2 more doorways and a first floor window, all C19 Tudor. A short tall
wall containing a Tudor doorway connects this building and the main house. The rear
of this block contains more C16 Beerstone windows with hollow-chamfered mullions
apparently in situ. The stable block crosswing front shows clear signs of more than
one build. The features are mostly C19 and the only C16 one, a 2-light window has
been reset. There are 3 doorways (the right one is blocked) and 2 ground floor
windows. The date plaque containing the inscription PFB is over the central
doorway. Both roofs are gable-ended.
Interior: only limited internal inspection was carried out but the carpentry detail
seen was all plain and C19 in date. The stables contain good stall fittings from
the mid C19.
These stables and coach houses still contain a good deal of C16 work. They also
form part of a group with the other ancillary buildings associated with Holcombe
Court (q.v) and other buildings at the top end of Holcombe Rogus village.
