COURTYARD: cobbled courtyard in part.
An interesting grouping with some good detailing. Of particular note are the boarded timber doors (some of which are stable doors), the small-pane upper, vented lower windows, the segmental-arched stable lights in the W range and the cobbled courtyard. Photographs held in the NMRS indicate that there was at one time, a larger wing projecting from the S range which divided the courtyard in two. This may explain the fact that today, only some of the yard is cobbled, for although there is still a wing projecting from the S range, it is by no means the size of the original and consequently, what was previously floor space is now exposed. The modern, brick-faced addition is not included in this listing. The later pedimented gateway, accessing the yard and adjoining the E range, is listed separately, as is the nearby Cranshaws Castle.
