These form 3 sides of a court-yard, though they comprise 3 separate blocks.
They date from the early C18. and show considerable trace of the influence of
Vanbrugh. The central block is the coach-house. This has 2 exposed facades.
The more important faces the enclosed garden and has a recessed central portion
of 3 sash windows with glazing bars intact, the centre window being a lunette
and a heavy cornice. On each side of it is a squat projecting tower of 3 storeys
with a lunette window on the 2nd floor, a cornice, blocking course and pyramidical
slate roof with a weather-vane at the apex. Pilasters flank the ground floor
which has a recessed round-headed archway containing a lunette window. Beyond
the towers are flanking walls containing doorways with piers which join the
coach-house on this side to the South end of the 2 stable blocks which are treated
with pilasters and lunette windows in similar fashion to the towers of the coach-
house and are carried up to pediments above. On the North side facing the stable
courtyard the coach-house has 5 segmental-headed carriage doorways on the ground
floor. Modern windows above, a cornice, parapet and slate roof. The East and
West stable blocks have a central portion of 2 storeys with 2 windows on the
ground floor and a doorway between and a lunette window on the first floor and
1 storey flanking wings of 2,windows and 1 doorway each, the South one continued
by a portion containing another doorway to join the flanking walls of the coach-
house. The cornice above the wings becomes a stringcourse along the central
portion. Slate roofs, the central portions pyramidical: Casement windows with
keystones, as also have the doorways. The North side of the court-yard has
only a wall with 6 low piers and a taller similar pair in the centre flanking
the carriage entrance.
