4/67 The Kennels in
Lyme Park.


Kennels: c.1870 for William Legh. Rock-faced buff sandstone, with
some red and blue brick minor walls. Welsh slate roof and 2 stone
chimneys. Stretched H-shaped plan with short cross wings and 6
kennels between of one storey. End bays have 6-pane horned sashes
under gables. Each kennel has framed and boarded door with
semi-circular dog flap, with small rectangular yard in front with iron
railings on stone-coped walls. A rectangular paddock in front of all
the kennels is enclosed by larger similar railings with a gate in
either side.
Interior: to rear of left cross wing is a deer slaughterhouse with a
winch and haying racks. Room to front of right cross wing has crude
fireplace mimicking the one in the Stag Parlour, Lyme Park (q.v.).

The kennels housed the last of the famous Lyme Mastiffs, a breed which
disappeared c.1900.
