(formerly listed as Stabling at
Stable block. C19, but with some earlier fragments. Ham stone ashlar; Welsh slate roof between coped gables having
obelisk finials. 'U'-plan single-storey. East range is the long central portion, plain with central gabled
4-centre-arched throughway, over which is set a carved coat of arms dated 1598 on scroll; on either side of archway are
shell-hood niches; two similar niches in side walls of throughway, and also 2 moulded cambered- arched doorways in
rectangular recesses. Throughway arch matched on west side, with circular plaque over and flanking shell-hood recesses;
to either side 3 bays of 2-light hollow-chamfer mullioned and transomed windows in wave-mould recesses without labels;
from each end returns westward of 5 bays to match, the first 2 bays with similar windows: the north range has 3 open
wagon sheds, the south range a coach-house opening now partly boarded up, and then 2 cambered-arched doorways with
sidelights. Inside east range the horse-boxes survive, with feed-lofts over. A stable yard with stables, coach house,
etc, indicated on this site on the rough 1782 survey, but the whole probably rebuilt between 1845-52. (Girouard, M and
others, Montacute House, National Trust, 1985).
