Stable block converted to flats. 1872 by Alfred Waterhouse (signed plans) for Edward
Byrom. Dressed volcanic trap with freestone dressings; coped, gabled slate roofs,
brick chimney.
The original plan was 6 coach-houses to the main range, three on either side of a
central archway with accommodation over. Stabling to the rear has been partly
damaged by fire.
2 storeys. Slightly asymmetrical front elevation with a central block with gables to
the front at left and right with a valley between the left-hand gable and the central
block. The right-hand gable is slightly taller and abuts the roof of the central
block. On the ground floor a central double-chamfered stone archway with a hood-
mould carried down below the springing of the arch. 3 double doors to the coach-
houses on either side have chamfered cambered doorways and ingeniously cambered
hinges. The central block has 6 first floor 1-light square-headed chamfered windows,
breaking the eaves, above the central pair of windows a steep coped gable rises above
the eaves, clock face in centre. A bell turret behind the gable has a slate
pyramidal roof. The left-hand gable has a single chamfered first floor window; the
right-hand gable has 3 similar first floor windows and a smaller pair to the left
above. Fenestration of casement windows with small panes. Paved yard in front of
stable block.
A fine stable block designed by a major C19 architect.
