Listing Text

ST4917 MONTACUTE CP THE BOROUGH (North side, off)
7/131 Quadrangle, about 6 metres south
of Montacute House, and walls
enclosing car park to south
(formerly listed as outbuildings
to south of Montacute House).
Range of buildings and walls adjoining forming quadrangle. C16, modified mid C19. Ham stone, mostly ashlar; Welsh slate
monopitch roofs, with safe rooflights. U plan, with ranges of buildings to north and east, walling to south. North
range has throughway, and two 4-light hollow-chamfer mullioned windows, one with 4-centre arched lights with incised
spandrils, no label,the other now with mullion removed and casement inserted: in east range two 2-light and two
3-light mullioned windows, and three 4-centre arched doorways, 2 moulded, one heavily, and one merely chamfered: south
range has two 4-light and a single-light windows. On east face of east range high level windows indicate that this row
was formerly 2-storey: a new service court for this area designed by Lewis vulliamy but never built; instead the
existing service court was remodelled by 1853, the former buildings being lowered. The walling to the south, enclosing
the main car park, appears to have enclosed a more formal garden in 1782: walls about 2.5 metres high in coursed Ham
stone rubble, with some parts set higher especially to south; C20 gateways in south and west walls. (Girouard, M and
others, Montacute House, National Trust, 1985).
