Service and Kitchen wing; to the north are the adjoining stables, coachman's and

garages. Mid - C19 partly demolished 1955, restored 1970's-80's. Rubble with
freestone dressings, ashlar to part of the service wing; mostly C20 roofs,
pantiled and reproduction slates. Highly irregular and asymmetrical castellated
Gothic style buildings. To the south are the remains of the service and kitchen
wing of the main house. It consists of an L-plan tower: embattled parapet,
string course with corbels; 3 stages; casement windows under hood moulds. A
2 storey, ashlar wing with a slate roof projects to the south: 1-3-1 light
mullioned and transomed oriel window. To the east is a ruinous wing of 3
storeys: 3 bay arcaded passage of 4-centred arches. To the north of the
service wing is the stable range: embattled parapet; 2 storeys: 6 bays, 3 C2O
windows and 3 doors in plain stone surrounds on ground floor; at the left is a
2 stage square tower with a pointed window and a circular stair tower to the
rear. A pointed arch joins the former stables to the coachman's house and
grooms quarters, and workshops and stores to the north: 2 stage square tower
with 2-light C20 windows, one with chamfered mullions and surrounds under a drip
mould; projecting C20 conservatory; adjoining the tower is a wing with a crow
stepped gable end, single light windows in both floors under hood mould on first
floor. A derelict range leads to a 3 stage square tower (restored to 2 stages):
pierced parapet on corbelled string course; projecting tourelle; oriel window
on second stage, semi-circular on plan with moulded base and cap. To the rear
of the square tower are 2 joined circular towers, of 2 stages but one taller than
the other; embattled parapets and narrow pointed windows; to the left of the
towers is a tall single light window with a cusped head, under a drip mould. To
the north-west of the 3 stage tower is a stableyard enclosed by a high rubble
wall with embattled parapet (varying from 8-20' high); 2 pointed archways at
south-west corner also with embattled parapet; workshops and outbuildings abut the
insides of the walls. 5 yards to the east of the main ranges is a former coach
house: embattled parapet; 2 storeys; cross-loop and loop windows; C20 doors
on ground floor; 3-light casement window under hood mould to east elevation.
The Rocks was a Country House of c.1610, possibly incorporating a mediaeval
building and extended and castellated in the mid C19. The majority of the
buildings were dynamited c.1955.
