gabled dormers. Coach house is 7 bays with open elliptical

original stalls to the stables, those to S side under plaster
crossed barrel vaults springing from octagonal columns, those
to W side with round-arched stall arcades with unfluted Roman
Doric columns with entablature above the capitals. Those to N
side have later cast-iron and boarded ramped stalls and with
flanking loose boxes, all with brick floors. The room to the W
side of the entrance passage has a plaster ceiling with a
modillion cornice, the other room has a moulded cornice.
This is an important stable block, particularly with the
