TQ 64 SE CAPEL BADSELL ROAD
6/209 Stables approx 60m south of
Badsell Manor Farmhouse
Stable block, now converted to a house. Late C16/early C17, converted circa
1986. Front is late C16/early C17 brick, English bond red brick with a diaper
pattern of burnt headers; east end rebuilt in C20 brick; rest is timber-framed
and clad with weatherboards; peg-tile roof.
Plan: The former stable block faces north north east, say north back onto the
road. Internal arrangement is the result of its conversion to a house. It
has always been 2 storeys, formerly with a hay loft over the stalls.
Exterior: Irregular 2-window front of C20 casements without glazing bars.
The 2 ground floor front doorways and 2 former hayloft loading hatch doorways
are probably in original positions and now contain C20 plank doors, mostly
part-glazed. The extreme right end of the front wall is weatherboarded. The
rest is brick. The left half was rebuilt circa 1986 and faced up with
original bricks in the same pattern as the original work surviving to right.
There is a chamfered plinth. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: Not inspected. There is, according to several reports, a curious
underground chamber built of brick with a barrel-vaulted roof.
